Reviewed in Australia on 16 April 2015
This book is still on the hard drive on the PC I think, we are moving house, and everything is a shambles, it will go onto the Samsung Tablet when we are settled in a new house with new beginnings. I know I will like this book very much, just as I do with the Sadhana

Five StarsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 4 September 2015
Lots of information.
Great book, for serious reading.Reviewed in India on 6 April 2016
Great book for practitioners and laity both. But you need to devote time to get into it. The language is not very lucid.
again a "must have" for the meditating vajrayana-buddhist!Reviewed in Germany on 13 November 2002
Again a book for both, the buddhist of the tibetan tradition and the scholars & students at universities. This book contains a translation of a Vajravarahi-Sadhana & guides through the different aspects of this godess.It describes the iconography, rituals and the origination of the Vajrayogini-cult in india.

Not really a book. It's her college dissertation. Boring.Reviewed in the United States on 31 January 2021
This isn't really a book. It's her college dissertation. It wasn't written for practitioners but for her college professors, so she could get her degree. It's dense, full of scholarly language (completely unnecessary at times, she just wanted to appear smart). Also she takes the word of western scholars of Buddhism as truth but rejects what actual Buddhist scholars have to say on the matter. She is dismissive of Buddhists claims, trying to appear as objective yet she comes off as arrogant and ignorant. Total waste of money.

It is a work that I would recommend to all devotees of VajrayoginiReviewed in the United States on 6 November 2017
Elizabeth English has written a very deep and full analysis of a Vajrayogini sadhana from the Sanskrit. It is a work that I would recommend to all devotees of Vajrayogini. One thing which I found important was how the Tibetan translations and conrtinuance of Vajrayogini practice is exact and follows on from the Sanskrit or Indian sadhanas. It, this voilume, sheds light on the whole practice of Vajrayogini. It is not so expensive and I recoomend those interested to get their own copy.
