Book Description

1 Aug 1992
Within all of us lies a source of infinite bliss and compassion for others. The special methods explained within Tantric Buddhism enable us to discover this bliss for ourselves. Contemporary Tantric master, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, explains step-by-step how we can generate a deeply peaceful and concentrated mind by harnessing the subtle energy system within our own body. With this blissful awareness we can uncover our true nature, destroy ignorance and suffering at its root, and swiftly become a source of inspiration and benefit for others. In short, this is a Tantric meditator's handbook, which reveals the most profound secrets of the ancient yogis and makes their blissful experience accessible to the modern world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fact-filled guide to Completion Stage 17 Jan 2003
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This book is well worth reading for all Tantric practitioners in the Kadampa, Gelug or Kagyu traditions and was the first account of "completion stage" practices published in the West, summing up centuries of orally-transmitted research by Tibetan and Indian meditators. As far as I am aware it is still the most comprehensive account even though it was written in 1982. Completion stage is the final group of meditation practices leading to actual enlightenment and success is guaranteed, though how soon you will be ready to start and how quickly you wil progress are not - so patient, steady effort without pushing is required! To prepare for completion stage, firm experience of self-generation as a Tantric Buddha is required (see "Guide to Dakini Land", "Essence of Vajrayana", or equivalent).

A merely intellectual understanding of these meditations is regarded as beneficial even if you are unable, or not yet qualified, to practice them. Beware however that the Gelugpa and Kadampa traditions actually practice these exercises in a modified sequence which they regard as more efficient, so if you want to start completion stage practice in either tradition you should definitely also read Geshe Kelsang's "Tantric Grounds and Paths" or an equivalent from one of the FPMT gurus.
