    Excellent book

    This is a wonderful book. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso¿s books are wonderful. They are concise and very easy to understand. This book is richly detailed in the specific vajrayogini rituals. It included the generation stage and completion stage mantras and rituals. I found it to be extremely helpful. The difference between the two methods is interesting. There are some times that I would rather do the generation and others that I would rather do the completion stage. The generation stage are a little more elaborate and more `secure¿ (for lack of a better word) feeling. The completion stage is simpler and faster. The historical information in the front of the book is very interesting. I have found Geshe Kelsang¿s books to be consistently easy to understand. If you are interested in the specific rituals and their meanings these are good books to use for that. I would recommend them to any level practitioner as his explanations render the book useful to anyone even beginners. Experienced practitioners may get more out this book but it is still understandable for beginners.

    Excellent Explanation of Tantric Practice

    Though not a book for novice students of the dharma, the book does give insight into the complexities and mysteries of tantric buddhist practice. For those with some background in buddhism, it is a clear explanation of the practice, with detailed illustrations of the mandalas, seed words, symbols, and ritual objects. For those steeped in buddhist practice, it is a useful handbook for practice. A very beautiful and interesting read into both the practice and the culture of Tibetan buddhism.
