Tantra—often associated with Kundalini Yoga—is a fundamental dimension of Hinduism, emphasizing the cultivation of "divine power" (shakti) as a path to infinite bliss. Tantra has been widely misunderstood in the West, however, where its practices are often confused with eroticism and licentious morality. Tantra: The Path of Ecstasy dispels many common misconceptions, providing an accessible introduction to the history, philosophy, and practice of this extraordinary spiritual tradition.

The Tantric teachings are geared toward the attainment of enlightenment as well as spiritual power and are present not only in Hinduism but also Jainism and Vajrayana Buddhism. In this book, Georg Feuerstein offers readers a clear understanding of authentic Tantra, as well as appropriate guidance for spiritual practice and the attainment of higher consciousness.

Understanding Tantra
July 5th, 2015
If you are interested in the origins and teachings of Tantra this is perfect place to start. This book is written in a very "easy to understand" kind of way. I am a yoga teacher and I noticed that alot of the teachings I encountered in my yoga education were in fact based on the Tantric philosophy so I wanted to read a book that explained the philosophy and origins of Tantra in an interesting and insightful way. I got so much out of this book and I believe reading this book has given me more confidence as a teacher.
