Hardcover - minor shelfwear otherwise a fine clean sturdy copy. Dust jacket is slightly chipped and rubbed, but also quite good. From the dust jacket "Mudras in Japan by Lokesh Chandra and his late wife Sharada Rani is a collection of symbolic hand postures used in the rituals of Japanese Esoteric Buddhism of the Shingon denomination. The mudras have been an integral part of Buddhist iconography as well as of ritual. In Tantric rituals, the recitation of a mantra was accompanied by a mudra, and a ritual action. In the Mahavairocana sutra mudras are vital constituents of worship and meditation. Japan has the earliest manuscript of the mudras. The most ancient scroll is from the pen of Subhakarasimha of Nalanda, who lived from 637 to 735. The copy at the Onjoji monastery is dated 855. Another manuscript dated 864 has mudras of the susiddhi-tantra"

8 Chia, Mantak

Tan Tien Chi Kung: Foundational Exercises for Empty Force and Perineum Power
U.S.A.
Destiny Books
2004
0892811951 / 9780892811953

Soft Cover
As New





Appears NEW AND UNREAD! Just a hint of shopwear otherwise pristine. From the publisher:"Tan Tien Chi Kung is the art of cultivating and condensing chi in the lower abdomen--the tan tien--the fundamental power storehouse of the body. Known as the Ocean of Chi to the ancient Taoists, this lower abdominal area holds the key to opening the body and the mind for the free and continuous movement of chi. Tan Tien Chi Kung contains specific breathing and movement exercises that develop the power of the chi stored in the body to increase vitality, strengthen organs, and promote self-healing. Mantak Chia explains how these exercises also provide a safe and effective method for receiving earth energy, which allows the practitioner to achieve balance physically, mentally, and spiritually--all of which are essential for the more advanced practices of Iron Shirt Chi Kung and Cosmic Healing. It is our mind that directs and guides our chi, but if the mind and body are out of balance or under stress, the mind cannot perform this function. The tan tien actually contains a large quantity of neurotransmitters, making it a key source of body intelligence. It is for this reason the Taoists also referred to Tan Tien Chi Kung as Second Brain Chi Kung and created exercises that would allow practitioners to gain awareness of the tan tien's function to restore the mind-body balance that is essential for spiritual growth and optimal well-being."

16 Dieter-mathes, Klaus

A Direct Path to the Buddha Within: Go Lotsawa's Mahamudra Interpretation of the Ratnagotravibhaga
Sommerville, Massachusetts, U.S.A.
Wisdom Pubns
2007
0861715284 / 9780861715282

Soft Cover
Very Good





Very slight edgewear and faint creasing of spine and covers, otherwise a fine clean tight and bright copy - The major Indian treatise on Buddha nature is the Ratnagotravibhaga, also known as the Uttaratantra, and it is this core text that Klaus-Dieter Mathes focuses on in this book. Mathes demonstrates how its author, Gö Lotsawa, ties the teachings on Buddha nature in with mainstream Mahayana thought while avoiding the pitfalls of the zhentong approach favored by the Jonang tradition. He also evaluates Gö Lotsawa’s position on Buddha nature against the background of interpretations by masters of the Kagyü, Nyingma, and Jonang schools.

Auspicious Wisdom: The Texts and Traditions of Srividya Sakta Tantrism in South India
U.S.A.
Manohar Publishers and Distributors
1996
8173041709 / 9788173041709

Hard Cover
Fine
Very Good




Hardcover - appears hardly read if at all! Dust jacket is a little frayed along edges but otherwise fine. From the publisher:Rooting itself in Kashmir Shaivism, Srividya became a force in South India no later than the seventh century, and eventually supplanted the Trika as the dominant Tantric tradition in Kashmir. This is the first comprehensive study of the texts and traditions of this influential school of goddess-centered, Sakta, Tantrism. Centering on the goddess's three manifestations—the beneficent deity Lalita Tripurasundari, her mantra, and the visually striking sricakra—Srividya creates a systematic esoteric discipline that combines elements of the yogas of knowledge, of devotion, and of ritual. Utilizing canonical works, historical commentaires, and the interpretive insights of living practitioners, this book explores the theological and ritual theories that form the basis for Srividya practice and offers new methods for critical and comparative studies of esoteric Hinduism."

18 Dowman, Keith

Sky Dancer: The Secret Life And Songs Of Lady Yeshe Tsogyel
U.S.A.
Snow Lion
1996
1559390654 / 9781559390651

Soft Cover
Very Good





Minor edgewear, a few annotations and a few pages with turned-down corners, otherwise a fine clean solid copy. From the publisher:Yeshe Tsogyel, consort of Guru Padmasambhava, is the most famous of the enlightened women of Tibet. Women have a special place in tantra, but except for Sky Dancer there are few writings that present the spiritual practices and evolution of female aspirants. Here women are in an eminent position, and a path of practice is given for present-day initiates to emulate. Keith Dowman has added a commentary on the path of inner tantra, woman and the dakini, and the Nyingma lineages."

Sexy Yoga: 40 Poses for Mindblowing Sex and Greater Intimacy
USA
Amorata Press
2004
1569754365 / 9781569754368

Soft Cover
As New





Appears NEW AND UNREAD! Gift quality item! From the publisher:"First revealed over 2,000 years ago in the Kama Sutra, the link between yoga and sex has been generally recognized but widely ignored - until now. In Sexy Yoga, Ellen Barrett, popular author and instructor for New York's Crunch studios, offers the modern yoga student a specific program designed to transform and heighten sexual pleasure and lovemaking. Barrett's program includes a series of asanas (postures) that use yoga's combination of movement, breathing, and focus to release sexual power. Sensual, erotic, and guaranteed to improve sexual performance, the poses are also designed to improve one's ability to navigate both the physical and emotional demands of intimacy. Rooted in the rich tradition of yoga but far from an esoteric Indian practice, the program in this book is suitable for everyone from new students to experienced yoga practitioners. "
