  • Excellent and readable translation of the (Kashmir Shaivism) Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, with Sanskrit, transliteration and interpretation by the author. Since there aren't many translations around, this gives new light to some of the existing (and less accurate) translations. The tantra itself is highly practical and minimalist in instructions, hence it is an excellent source for those on the path of spiritual practice (or those interested in experimenting with methods).


  • Practicing steadfastly any one of the meditations in this ancient scripture will unfold a profound state of simplest awareness. Originally brought to wide attention in the West by Paul Reps in Zen Flesh, Zen Bones, the Vijnana-Bhairava Tantra details not just one, but 112 ways to transcend. This translation follows the Sanskrit more closly than did Reps and also offers commentaries composed in consultation with the great contemplative Shri Swami Laksmana Joo of Shinagar, the last great teacher i [...]


  • A companion for more than 30 years the VBhT still offers me inner peace and Wisdom. The English translation is not great but if read slowly and with some basic Sanskrit knowledge the reading is perfect. The most important thing on reading this book is to practice. Verse 24 still offers the experience of the whole book if practicing purposely. Hamsa has been and still is my greatest companion. Swami Muktananda wrote a book on this verse and although his elucidation is quite good and helps at entr [...]
