So it’s hard to buy some of the claims they make, especially when they’re alongside statements like “this one person cured their cancer by changing their thinking!

I’m fine with playing along with different ways of thinking and finding meaning, but I’m not fine txntra obvious, outright BS.

Introduction to Tantra: The Transformation of Desire

It’s a book about the mind by someone who is clearly not up to date on all the new knowledge we’ve gained on how the brain actually works. We have to know that the attainment of enlightenment completion, buddhahood, totality, or whatever we want to call it is not only a theoretical possibility but something that people like us can and do actually achieve.

He is funny, straightforward, humble, and full of joy. Excellent description of Tibetan Buddhist Tantra; the transformation of desire and pleasures into yesh experiences of deep penetrative awareness; this is absolutely amazing!

Through seeing ourselves as one with our spiritual guide we banish the self-pitying thought: Mar 23, Safoura added it.

Introduction to Tantra: Lama Yeshe

You will discover that tantra is more about seeing bj as a God and about having the ability to transcend into a better place in the death. Got a little redundant. 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 ydshe your critical thought while also claiming to be something that is “scientific”, that you can try the techniques out for yourself.


Jun 20, Matt Harris rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I’ve been reading a lot of Lama Yeshe lately; currently he’s my favorite guru.

He was a wonderful person who had the unique quality of conveying the true message of the union of compassion and wisdom. Overall, this book just rubs me the wrong way.

Introduction to Tantra : The Transformation of Desire

Check out the top books of the year on our page Best Books of Yesge definitely feel that I now have a better understanding of Tibetan Buddhism, and have picked up a few useful concepts and a really general patchy outline of what’s going on in tantric practices, but really would have preferred a deeper text, in fact the whole second half of the book just seemed a bit rushed.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Books by Lama Thubten Yeshe.

He spent six years living in northern India studying Tibetan Buddhism and is the editor and author of a number of Buddhist books, including Wisdom Energy and Buddhism for Dummies. He makes renouncing worldly desire sound like it is the most delicious, erotic, hilarious party ever.

Very inspiring, clear and practical on its approach.
