The Lion’s Roar: An Introduction to Tantra
Author: Chogyam Trungpa
Publisher: Shambhala, Boston 1992 First Edition
Paperback: 256 pages.
Description: This book is based on two historic seminars of the 1970's, in which Chogyam Trungpa introduced the tantric teachings of Tibetan Buddhism to his Western students for the first time. Each seminar bore the title "The Nine Yanas."Yana, a Sanskrit word meaning "vehicle," refers to a body of doctrine and practical instruction that enables students to advance spiritually on the path of buddhadharma. Nine vehicles, arranged in successive levels, make up the whole path of Buddhist practice. Teaching all nine means giving a total picture of the spiritual journey. The author's nontheoretical, experiential approach opens up a world of fundamental psychological insights and subtleties. He speaks directly to a contemporary Western audience, using earthy analogies that establish the ancient teachings in the midst of ordinary life.
