Covering topics such as The Preciousness of Tantra, The Tantra of Generation Stage and Completion Stage, and How to Meditate on the Central Channel, Indestructible Drop and Indestructible Wind and Mind, this volume shows how, through sincere practice, we can fulfil our compassionate wish and attain full enlightenment in this life.

HASH(0xa5fca3cc) out of 5 stars Essence of Tantra July 6 2011
By Linda Uram - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book gives clear and practical advice on how to practice Tantra correctly. It is so condensed that I feel it works in 2 ways. For those new to Tantra it gives a clear overview of what Tantra is and how to practice it. For those who have more experience it shows clearly how to progress in these very subtle profound meditations that are the essence of Tantra.
I can say from my own experience that it has helped my practice on a very deep level. I have been practicing Tantra over 10 years and this book clarified a lot of points for me.

HASH(0xa5fdbcc0) out of 5 stars Phenomenal book Nov. 15 2011
By Len Foley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
It's sometimes hard to take "free" ebooks seriously... but this is not only one of the best ebooks I have ever read... but the best book on how to integrate Buddhism into our modern, hectic lives. I highly, highly recommend this book!

HASH(0xa6c1cdbc) out of 5 stars Thank you Kelse! Sept. 12 2013
By expatgirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I would like to thank the author for writing these very deep, and spiritual books and making them available to the public out of his own goodwill. This man has true faith, and this book is not dumbed down at all. However, I do feel that the explanations on the true emptiness of nature would be better described using Physics. I feel that anyone having a hard time grasping what Kelse is talking about study a bit of physics. Everything is particles suspended in space, and we are not the same particles that we were a few years ago. I feel that the book would be better explaining emptiness from a physicists stand point, because I feel it does not do it justice in the non-scientific way it is described here. However, read up on physics. Light is particles we are particles and we have space, if you really went to look for us, we would not be there. Brush up on Physics before, or during reading this!

HASH(0xa62a9ef4) out of 5 stars Excellent work. July 11 2016
By Ye Shall Be As Gods - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have embarked on a little personal journey to achieve at least a baseline understanding of as wide of a variety of the world's religions as I can. Being a western reader, some of the books regarding Buddhism have been a little difficult for me to understand due to translation issues, and just a general distance from the culture in which Buddhism came about. I found this book to and its other volumes to be the best at delineating the applications of Buddhism to the modern international reader. This book has much to contribute to the spiritual seeker.
