Product description

Review

"Meditation teacher Roche (Meditation Made Easy) gives a contemporary interpretation of an ancient text: the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra. The book includes an incisive foreword by yoga luminary Shiva Rea, who observes that following even one of the titular sutra is 'enough to change a life.' Roche explains that he calls the text 'The Radiance Sutras' because the writings are so luminous: the compendium is set as conversation between two lovers, Shiva and Shakti, and covers breathing, tasting sleeping, making love, and sensory vehicles for realizing your nature. With each entry presented in Part One, Roche includes the Sanskrit script, transliteration, and pronunciation. Part Two, 'Invitations and Illuminations, ' offers 112 meditation practices (yuktis) that guide readers toward falling in love with their own existence. Readers with advanced meditation experience will appreciate the intensity of Roche's knowledge of and experience with this ancient text, and newcomers will be drawn to the beauty and radiance of the verses, as well as the accessibility and creativity of the practices." --Publishers Weekly

"If you love Rumi, Hafiz, The Tao, if you love words dancing out of the mystery, welcome to The Radiance Sutras: these are among the most profound and luminous verses you will ever read." --Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart

"If you are wild and longing for a more profound experience of love, this book is the perfect companion and teacher. If you're afraid to explore the inner reaches of your heart but long for that freedom, you can trust the magnificent journey The Radiance Sutras offer. You will be blessed by this book--it will forever change you in the most positive, surprising ways." --Judith Orloff, MD, author of The Ecstasy of Surrender

"Lorin Roche's poetic renderings of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra are a gift to anyone who loves the inner world. They arise from the currents of his own meditation, grounded in deep practice. These verses can draw light into your sitting practice and shed wisdom into your days. Keep this book by your bed, hold its inspiration in your heart, and let these verses pulse through your life with the radiance of the tantric revelation." --Sally Kempton, author of Meditation for the Love of It and Awakening Shakti

"The most inspiring rendering of the Vijnana Bhairava I have ever encountered. Juicy, hip, intelligent, and the best companion for your daily life. We all need daily reminders to 'celebrate the boundary where body meets infinity.'" --Margot Anand, author of The Art of Everyday Ecstasy

"Lorin Roche is a tantric troubadour! His engaging and lively versions of The Radiance Sutras capture the joy and spontaneity of the original Sanskrit and are a unique window onto the meditative experience." --David Gordon White, author of Sinister Yogis and Kiss of the Yogini

"A treasure trove of invaluable spiritual jewels. Pick up any of these jewels and behold, as precious esoteric knowledge suffuses your entire being with ineffable joy, love, and 'knowing." --Raz Ingrasci, chairman, Hoffman Institute International
