“This book is the best spiritual philosophy book I have ever read. I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years and this book has helped me deepen my practice. It makes no division between the spiritual and the now. This book has helped me make connections of how to work with residual anxiety from having been abused in childhood with spiritual practices, and in the process has helped me commit more to the spiritual path.” - Molly

“I am a Tantra Yoga teacher, and whenever someone asks me "So what is Tantra, anyway?" and is genuinely curious to know the answer, I recommend he or she read this book (or listen to the audiobook). It is a masterfully interwoven overview of the history and practices of various traditional Tantric lineages, complete with techniques which might be beneficial for the modern reader/practitioner. Both informative in an academic sense and relevant for a non-scholastic audience, Christopher Wallis has created a masterpiece for modern Tantrik practitioners to educate and inform themselves of the deep and rich tradition of Shaiva (Śaiva) Tantra, and all the changes it has undergone over time.” - Amazon reader

“I consider it a must-read for anyone considering themselves a Tantrik or Tāntrika, especially in these modern times where Tantra is widely misunderstood, and "New Age" and "Neo-Tantra" movements have influenced (and muddled) our current understanding of this ancient philosophy and spiritual path to self-realization” - Amazon reader
