Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Tantra, André Padoux, an expert on India and Hinduism, dispels the common myths and stereotypes of tantrism—including its reputation for indulging extravagance, excess, and hedonism—and reveals instead the richness of Tantras rituals, symbols, and philosophies. The author discusses Tantras importance to some of the most fundamental aspects of Hinduism, including goddess worship, the science of mantras, ritual sexuality, mandalas, and more, but also illuminates Tantras relevance in Western culture. This is an essential guide to the myriad aspects of the practice of Hindu tantrism.

 

En El tantra, André Padoux, un experto en la India y el hinduismo, desvanece los mitos y estereotipos comunes del tantrismo—incluyendo su reputación de permitir extravagancias, excesos y hedonismo—y revela más bien la riqueza de los rituales, los símbolos y las filosofías del tantra. El autor discute la importancia del tantra a algunos de los aspectos más fundamentales del hinduismo, incluyendo el culto de la diosa, la ciencia de los mantras, la sexualidad ritualizada, mandalas y más, pero ilumina también la relevancia del tantra en la cultura occidental. Ésta es una guía esencial a los aspectos variados de la práctica del tantrismo hindú.
