André Van Lysebeth has practiced yoga since 1945 and is the founder of the Belgian Yoga Federation and co-founder of the European Yoga Foundation. He is considered one of the foremost authorities on Tantra.

He is also known for a quintessential book on human sexuality he took thirty years of his life to write, 'Tantra: The Cult of the Feminine'. He is one of the first Westerners to have practiced and taught yoga.

For Tantra, all of the myriad energy forms in the universe - gravity, nuclear cohesion, electromagnetism - exist throughout . Tantrists have perceived this unity for over thirty-five centuries," points out van Lysebeth in his introduction.

For Tantra, all of the myriad energy forms in the universe - gravity, nuclear cohesion, electromagnetism - exist throughout the cosmos. Scientifically speaking, the universe is a gigantic continuum ranging from sub-atomic to astronomical dimensions. Originally published in 1992, Tantra has become the classic text on the subject, the source for serious students

Van Lysebeth reveals to Westerners practising Yoga how to see the manifestation of divine and human love (the sexual ritual) in the most sacred, uplifting and transforming way! Reading this book will represent a HUGE PARADIGM SHIFT for you! Truly, this book is as much about spiritual transformation as much as sexual transformation. IT IS FULLY A SPIRITUAL BOOK (while being very concrete!). It is full of useful information, which I still refer to.

Known only for the virtues of its sexual practice, ancient Tantric ideology is a universal and wide-reaching ideology virtually ignored in the West. In Tantra: The Cult of the Feminine, one of Europe's foremost Tantric authors and teachers, Andre Van Lysebeth, gives readers a balanced, well-informed, modern examination of the secret teachings and symbolism of Tantra. Espousing no dogma, Tantra involves a search for reality that contradicts neither science nor religion. For Tantra, all of the myriad energy forms in the universe -- gravity, nuclear cohesion, electromagnetism -- exist throughout the cosmos. "Scientifically speaking, the universe is a gigantic continuum ranging from sub-atomic to astronomical dimensions. Tantrists have perceived this unity for over thirty-five centuries," points out van Lysebeth in his introduction. Originally published in 1992, Tantra has become the classic text on the subject, the source for serious students. Eight full-color illustrations and 36 line drawings complement a comprehensive and contemporary explanation of Tantra, complete with meditations. Andre does a remarkable job of bringing ancient theories into the modern world.

Incredibly thorough; a very entertaining read, with lots of beautiful poetic imagery surrounding amazing information mostly inaccessible to Westerners. I have been a practicing Taoist, Yogi & Tantrist for 8 years - and still did not know half of what was in this book. Out of the many Tantra books I have read, this is by far the best. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because it does not seem to have been proofread by an editor; occasionally the wording or sentence structure can be awkward, as though written by an individual who learned English as a second language (which might be the case). However, the information it contains is priceless, the subject matter fascinating, and the tone is inspirational & uplifting. An excellent read for anyone wanting to understand the origin, mechanics & usage of cognitive focusing devices meant to dissolve ego boundaries between individuals seeking to bask in their shared divinity as an act of mutual worship.

I read the book before and I found it useful, clear, with the right research and context behind and with a very contemporary explanation for western people.

I've seen this book before but never actually considered reading it, until upon the advice of a yoga friend of mine. Well, I can say that it was a mostly interesting read. Yet most of what he says here is abstract philosophical vapor, being in praise of Matriarchy and the Great Goddess and all that. It's like talking about talking about something, but never actually getting around to the thing itself. And what little there was of practical, experiential value [pp. 297-340] as yogic sadhana, is not original at all. Of particular interest was the fact that he complained so much about Osho (a.k.a. Bhagawan Rajneesh, Sri Sri Neo-Tantra). To me, when someone complains about someone else SO MUCH and are at such pains to distinguish and distance themselves, its a sign that they really *are* that similar, after all! Osho was (in)famous for promoting "neo-tantra," that is, an uninhibited sexual free-for-all for Westerners seeking both sex and enlightenment ("enlightened sex"?). Van Lysbeth's teaching are what I'd call "neo-tantra non plus ultra" (Neo-tantra--and not much more). He even uses the ridiculous term, "cosmic orgasm" [p. 345]. Still, it was interesting read & it fits with a lot of material I've been working with in other esoteric avenues, personally. The books numerous shortcomings include: the meandering writing style, no credits for photos/maps/diagrams used throughout [but note the excellent diagrams of ano-genital musculature, pp.306-307], the Mughal-style Kama Sutra paintings portrayed as tantric "asanas", the incessant textual references to works not cited in the Bibliography, the pretentious posture of imparting tantric "secrets" not discussed elsewhere, and the contrived historical sense of a "Tantra" that never existed except in the minds of befuddled Westerners and the Eastern gurus who sexploited them. If you want to learn something about Tantra, read Abhinavagupta or D.G. White. If you want to learn about sexual practices, read M. Chia or the Bihar School books on mulabandha. If you wish merely to wax mystical about your desire to return to Original Matriarchy, read this book--you'll feel real good. A note about me: practicing yoga, understanding historical Tantra, worshipping the goddess, returning to a more receptive Yin state of being--all this fits in well with my own evolving belief system. Just don't expect to find much of substance here.

Who are we. How did we get here. Where are we going. Why? Science has crushed 4000 years of male oriented religion into a stew of mythical make believe, nice but not the answer.

Long before that, there were ancient natural beliefs. Their echoes are still seen in our cultures, however corrupted. They are not a religion, and certainly not a cult. They are a way of being that has been ignored throughout the last 4000 "Great Man Theory of History" years. That has left us with a spiritual residue that worships the commercialization of "good" looks.

Yet what we have learned in the last century has invalidated all previous systems of thought. Science now knows for sure that the human female was not made primarily for reproductive sex; her biology is uniquely vast beyond that. All our patriarchal religious got it wrong. Science has also shown us how we are mostly empty space with our sub atomic bits of matter continuously structured in that space by energy waves. We are one big network of tiny particles talking to each other and resonating together, and we do that in bigger and bigger networks, every particle continuously and timelessly connected to every other particle, human to human to all of nature.

How do we unite to take better care of Mother Nature, including ourselves, live longer, healthier, more joyous lives, give a heart to heartless science and business, and create the kind of future we want our grandchildren to live in? Tantra is that balanced view, and Van Lysebeth's book is amazing in it's sweep and relevance while getting to the point over and over.

I'd been feeling surrounded by spiritual nonsense and lots of escapist make believe. I knew nothing about yoga when I picked this book up. What it did for me was put many current issues of ordinary living ... and dying ... into perspective. I don't know if it will help my body, but it certainly has been an immediate help to my spirit.

Love how this is written

This book has completely changed my view on sexual life. I recommended to anyone looking for answers about where we really comes from, how our view of sexuality is highly detrimental to our own health and happiness and how to reach new levels of consciousness and joy in their everyday life.
