This book either wasn't translated very well or wasn't written very well. It could be helpfull for those seeking guidence. But for me it was to forcefull in it's content. It was more about one man's religous veiws, how he sees and practices Tantra. I don't learn that way so I was looking more for a book on basic Tantric truths so I could form my own beliefs. This book was a disapointment to me. But some people who learn well from seeing the world through other peoples eyes may find this book very helpfull.

I found this book during a very difficult passage of my life. I had a growing interest in spiritual matters and I had always been the phylosophical type. Really, I couldn't believe there was such a wise man on earth. It makes the vast majority of respected spiritual literature pale in comparison. I won't tell you any of the ideas presented in the book. I don't feel this short review has the space nor it gives me the authority to do so. But, if you are through tough times, or just are a sincere seeker, you can't go wrong with this masterpiece. Best of all, the book is a transcription of the actual master's talks. So you will be wondered at how he can produce such gems on-the-fly. Believe me, it can change your life forever.
