In Ecstasy Through Tantra, Dr. Jonn Mumford celebrates the joyous and mystical depths of sexual love. People are more open about sex today, and so it is now possible to talk openly about going beyond mere joy, beyond the physical and emotional aspects of sexual union, to the ecstasy of union with Divine Power that is centered in every body and throughout the universe. In the pages of this book you will learn that you do not need to go to the top of a mountain to commune with Divinity; Its temple is the body, Its sacrament the communion between lovers, and that communion involves all the awesome powers of the universe in the microcosm of the lovers. You will learn mental and physical exercises aimed at developing that psycho-sexual power. Once you have mastered those techniques, you will find explicit instructions for using sexual activity to achieve your goals on earth (magic) and on the spiritual planes (bliss). Ecstasy Through Tantra is filled with magnificent original illustrations as well as ones from ancient sources. There are many exclusive photos of ancient temples and erotic sculptures in India, as well as color photographs of couples demonstrating sexual positions for the arousal of kundalini in Tantric practice. This groundbreaking book is your guide to the world of sacred sexuality.

Tantra in Practice is the eight volume of Princeton Readings in Religions and the first substantial anthology of Tantric works ever to appear in English. The thirty-nine contributors, drawn from around the world, are leading scholars of Tantra. Each contributor has provided a translation of a key work, in most cases translated here for the first time. Each chapter in the volume begins with an introduction in which the translator discusses the history and influence of the work, identifying points of particular difficulty or interest. David White has provided a general introduction to the volume that serves as an ideal guide to the riches contained between the covers of this book. He has organized the volume thematically, providing fascinating juxtapositions of works from different regions, periods, and traditions. Two additional tables of contents are provided, organizing the works by tradition and by country of origin. The range of works represented here is remarkable, spanning the continent of Asia and the traditions of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Islam over more than a millennium. With the publication this volume, the long disparaged and neglected Tantric traditions of Asia receive the attention they so rightly deserve. This is a groundbreaking work.

Bibliography Index The Tantra Is A Body Of Theories, Techniques And Rituals Developed In India In Antiquity, Which Has Two Fundamental Aspects. The First Aspect Of The Tantra Is The Theory Of Creation, Which Posits That The Universe Has No Beginning And No End, And That All Its Manifestations Are Merely The Projections Of Divine Energy Of Its Creator. The Second Aspect Of The Tantra Is The Belief That The Performance Of Tantrik Techniques And Rituals Facilitates Access To This Divine Energy, Enabling Their Practitioners To Empower Themselves, As Well As Empower Others Associated With Them In The Guru-Disciple Relationship.
