However, even in those Tantric systems which place the greatest emphasis on harnessing sexual energy, this is just one aspect of a complex working of meditation, mantra, yantra and yoga. Using new translations from ancient and mediaeval Sanskrit texts, this book examines the many beliefs and cultural influences which make up the Tantric tradition.Hide synopsis

Using new translations from ancient and medieval texts, this book examines the many beliefs and cultural influences which make up the Tantric tradition and seeks to show that the Tantric sacraments are survivals of a quest for gnosis that is as old as humanity itself. Tantra has produced a wealth of erotic art and literature over the centuries. Still popular are the Kama Sutra and the Anaga Ranga, the outward expressions of a secret sexual teaching of which Tantra is the hidden core. Much Tantric art was used for ritual purposes and only seen by initiates. Many of these paintings and sculptures remain in India or are in private collections, and have been photographed specially for this book.
