When we think about Tibet, we are often taken back to the stories of the search for Shangri-La. We are beguiled by stories of men and women who spend their entire lives in meditation in hopes to achieve liberation from the ties that bind us here on this Earth. We are further in awe of those stories of the great mystics who, though Tibetan rituals, develop supernatural powers. All these stories have elements of truth in them. Rumors of this nature are often unconfirmed facts, as it were.
Tibetan Buddhism is fascinating. It is by far the most mystical and most complex form of Buddhism throughout the spectrum of Buddhist sects. Most in popular culture associate it mostly with the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibet. However, there is so much more to it, so much in fact that no single volume could ever capture the magic and the wonder of this great tradition.
Like most Eastern traditions, Tibetan Buddhism has a rich tradition of mantra chanting and magick. Some of the rituals are so elaborate they can often intimidate the minds of those with entrenched Western sensibilities. A good way to pierce the mystery is to work with the mantras of this great tradition.
In this book we will perform seven rituals using Tibetan mantras.
