Overview

This extraordinary book clearly outlines and discusses the methods for transforming both body and mind through the highest forms of tantric practice. Highest Yoga Tantra is the pinnacle of tantric systems found in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Part One discusses the practices common to sutra and tantra. Part Two presents the generation stage of Highest Yoga Tantra. Part Three covers the entirety of the completion stage yogas (i.e., physical isolation, verbal isolation, mental isolation, illusory body, clear light, and union). Part Four compares the Kalachakra and Guhyasamaja stages of completion. Remarkable for its definitive clarity, this exposition of the stages of Highest Yoga Tantra is the first of its kind in the English language and a must for anyone interested in these highest tantras.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is an extremely lucid overview of the generation and completion stages of Highest Yoga Tantra." —The Middle Way

"This book deserves to be a most popular book on Tantra. It captures both the essence and detail that bring these esoteric topics to life." —Jeffrey Hopkins, University of Virginia

"The best introduction to the subject, well-written and authoritative." —John Powers, Australian National University

"Although the Kalachakra Tantra contains unique qualities not found elsewhere in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism, it is essential to understand that it also exemplifies the category of practices referred to as Anuttara Yoga tantra (highest yoga tantra). Cozort's now-classic text is peerless as an introduction to the theoretical and practical underpinnings of highest yoga tantra and to the relationship of this level of practice to sutra traditions and the Buddhist path as a whole. A special section comparing the completion stage in the Kalachakra to that of Guhyasamaja will be especially informative and helpful for the aspiring student and practitioner." —Mandala: A Tibetan Buddhist Journal

"Professor of religion Daniel Cozort offers the fruits of his studies with numerous Tibetan lamas. . . . Highly recommended for anyone interested in learning more about or personally experiencing the highest tantras." —Wisconsin Bookwatch
