A practical guide Jan. 28 2002
By Geertrudis L. Harderwijk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Alex Berzin manages to convey the essence of the Kalachakra tantra, the vows and committments, and the initiation ceremony in day-to-day language, which makes the book absolutely essential for the serious first-time initiate. The book is also a valuable asset for everybody else interested in the Tibetan tantric tradition; it takes away some of 'magical myths'and misconceptions surrounding tantra. As a practical guide to the initiation, well this it IT.
This book also forms an excellent introduction to the excellent, but much more 'scholarly' and formal book 'Kalachakra Tantra, Rite of Initiation' by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Jeffrey Hopkins.

A practical guide Feb. 3 2002
By Geertrudis L. Harderwijk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book could have had the sub-title 'A practical guide to the Initiation'. Berzin manages to convey the essence of the Kalachakra tantra, the vows, committments, and the initiation ceremony in day-to-day language, which makes the book absolutely essential for the serious first-time initiate, and a 'must-have' for just about everybody else interested in the Kalachakra tantra. Also for people who do not intend to take the initiation, this book appears quite suitable to remove misconceptions about tantra and may well inspire some to take it.
