      Introduction to Tantra, first published in , republished by Wisdom in , and now reissued in , has become a classic introduction to Vajrayana Buddhism. Based on teachings given by the Gelug (dge lugs)trained Tibetan monk Lama Yeshe () to his Western students, the book begins with a general overview of basic Buddhist teachings. Preface This is a centennial tribute to an outstanding pioneer in the field of Tantric-Buddhist studies, Dr. Benoytosh Bhattacharyya (). The volume contains papers by a generation of scholars on different aspects of Tantric Buddhism and Tantrism in general. We are grateful to all who have contributed to this volume out of their genuine respect to the scholarship of Dr, Benoytosh.

    Foreword I first wrote the two pieces contained in this book some years ago in response to many requests. Some people wanted to know something about Buddhism in general. Others were particularly interested in the practice of tantra. The teachings of the Buddha can be summarised as dealing with conduct and view. Conduct refers to the way we should behave, which is essentially to be nonviolent. Introduction to Tantra - Lama Yeshe Recently Updated* This DVD forms a companion to the second half of our free book "The Essence of Tibetan Buddhism." See the Tantra Explanation - What is Tantra? This video provides an introduction to the ancient spiritual science of Tantra. Tantra is the practice of merging one's unit.

      Making Sense of Tantric Buddhism is a major contribution to our understanding of Indian esoteric (or Tantric) Buddhism. Christian K. Wedemeyer writes with verve, humor, and—most crucially—remarkable clarity, managing to explain difficult texts and ideas with great lucidity. In this new edition of the best-selling Introduction to Buddhism, Peter Harvey provides a comprehensive introduction to the development of the Buddhist tradition in both Asia and the West. Extensively revised and fully updated, this new edition draws on recent scholarship in the field, exploring the tensions and continuities between the different forms of Buddhism.
