Jun 20, Matt Harris rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: those with a grounding in buddhism Shelves: top10books This lovely book made me look at the world differently, which a book can and should do. However not all books give a lasting insight which one can trace through years.

It is not about the kind of tantra associated with sex, per se, although of course this can be a very high expression of the tantric concepts. The book explains the benefits of being aware of desire and attachment in terms of relating day to day with anyone. Of course, the buddhist concept of desire is that it leads to attachment This lovely book made me look at the world differently, which a book can and should do.

Of course, the buddhist concept of desire is that it leads to attachment towards objects, or people, or the self. This attachment can prove unfulfilling and empty since we may have incorrect views of the self and others, viewing them as separate entities and disconnected with us.

Relying on external factors for happiness can be a perilous but exciting! For example, looking at lovely girls walking down the street, used to be a real mind wandering wish-fest! During the reading of this book, I started to enjoy the beauty of the people but then be very happy to have seen them and totally let them go, energetically.

Amazing the feeling of freedom this can give you. Lama Yeshe is one of the clearest and most generous of buddhist authors and I cannot be more grateful to read his books. Might just turn you inside-out, in a lovely way. Unfortunately, I found it to be full of a lot of woo. For example, believing that someone can put out a fire threatening to burn down a temple by meditating.

Or cure their cancer with positive thinking. Those sorts of statements sound just like every other religion and cult. They are invitations to suppress rational thought. By allowing yourself to believe that some profound religious experience is going to occur and surrounding yourself with people who expect you to have that experience, what choice does a biased human brain have but to convince itself that the experience has occurred?

This is the same trick that has worked on so many people for so many cults and religions for centuries. It seems to be saying that yes, there is one ultimate purpose in life - to achieve the highest levels of accomplishment in tantra and achieve enlightenment.

That strikes me as eternalism. Meaning is more nebulous than that. Overall, this book just rubs me the wrong way. How can somebody who makes obviously wrong claims like that be considered a good resource for anything?

Ultimately, the book sounds like more of a sales pitch than anything, constantly boasting of all the amazing things that will happen if you follow what they say, constantly reminding you to suppress your critical thought while also claiming to be something that is "scientific", that you can try the techniques out for yourself.

That sounds like the sort of reasoning that tricks millions of people into pursuing "alternative modalities of healing " instead of getting science based medical care for their medical problems.
