Publisher's Summary

In the classic best seller, Introduction to Tantra, Lama Yeshe offered a profound and wonderfully clear glimpse into the sophisticated practices of Tibetan Buddhist tantra. This present book, the last major teachings of this great lama, opens up the world of advanced practices for Highest Yoga Tantra initiates in much the same way his earlier work opened up the world of tantra in general.
Following Je Tsongkhapa's (1357-1419 C.E.) text Having the Three Convictions, Lama Yeshe introduces the renowned Six Yogas of Naropa, focusing mainly on the first of these six, the practice of inner fire (tummo). Mastery of inner fire quickly brings the mind to its most refined and penetrating state - the experience of clear light, an extra-ordinarily powerful state of mind that is unequaled in its ability to directly realize ultimate reality.
Lama Yeshe felt that 20th-century Westerners could easily grasp the often misunderstood ideas of this esoteric tradition: "We really need tantra these days because there is a tremendous explosion of delusion and distraction - and we need the atomic energy of inner fire to blast us out of our delusion."
Lama Yeshe's aim was for his students to actually taste the experience of inner fire rather than merely gain an intellectual understanding. Lama's own realization of the transformative power of these practices comes through, inspiring his students to discover for themselves their own capacity for inexhaustible bliss.

This is a starting point

A worthy read peppered with difficult ideas. Expect plenty of research and cross referencing for complete understanding. And of course don't forget to practice.

Excellent narration btw

Insighful commentary without fluff

Lama Yeshe gives a great deal of information on tuomo and other parts of the six yogas of naropa which make this a fascinating listen whether your journey to these has been through the Hindu, Sikh or Buddhist paths. Western writers on Tantra frequently bore me with their obsessive sexual inferences but Lama clearly shows true mastery by being able to delve deeply into the sexual implications of this practice without being fixated upon it. Instead he keeps saying clearly that the goal if Tantra is liberation and by that he means true freedom of mind rather than running around naked! As such I feel I have heard about Tantra from someone who has truly mastered it as a tool for enlightenment and not simply to spice up their sex life or sell a few more audiobooks. I would therefore recommend it highly, it's not just easy to listen to and insightful but it puts the practice within an important philosophical framework that vastly enriches the practice. Well worth it for any aspiring Gelugpa!
