"Within my body are all the sacred places of the world," the Buddhist saint Saraha once said, "and the most profound pilgrimage that I can ever make is within my own body."
For 15 centuries the realized masters of the tantric path used the crucible of their own lives to develop a powerful and accelerated means to enlightenment. Today these teachings remain alive within the usually hidden inner courtyard of the Vajrayana vehicle of Tibetan Buddhism, a tradition that requires the courage to engage your body, your human desires, and your most challenging life obstacles as the basic fuel for insight. Now, with Buddhist Tantra, esteemed teacher Reggie Ray introduces you to these precious teachings and invites you to explore the path to naked and unprecedented experience. The popular or exoteric teachings of Buddhism are known to many, yet its esoteric teachings remain relatively unknown in the West. If you have been seeking a gateway to this potent tradition, Buddhist Tantra is an unsurpassed opportunity to enter into the temple of its deepest truths.
Entering the Vajra World Through the Vehicle of Your Body
The word tantra means "to weave through", a metaphor that points to the vibrant fabric of intelligent and living energies that make up the essence of every cell of your body, every fleeting thought you have, and every particle of the universe. Entering this undefiled and ever-renewing vajra world is the promise of the tantric path.

The book I have been looking for
This book as awaken some things in me, like a child recognizing his mother, I felt like I have recognise a family ! In the book he talk about finding one path that resonates with us, for many years U have been shopping and discovering many differents ways of approaching the path, I have learn pieces from each one of them that helped me to walk the path. But this tradition of tantric Buddhism seems to make a melting of all the different pieces I collected through the years. To me this book is a revelation.
I really love how everything is explained, the way it is written and how stories are told keeps you engaged through all the book. I read this book in a short amount of time because I never wanted to stop ! There is some practicle exercise too that helps to better understand and feel what it is about. It teaches you the fundamentals and the history behind it, this is the most easy to comprehend, the most interesting book I have ever read about tantra ! If you have any interest about tantric budhism and like me are a bit tire of the books that just relate to history or to sexuality, this is the book that will make you really understand and grasp what those beautiful traditions are about !
