Did Mr. Rawson just explain the illusion of time? Let me read that again. And again. As Tantra addresses the great mysteries of existence, there's bound to be some interpretive wobble room. But count on Professor R, an artist and scholar, for the clearest, most concise essays on difficult subjects. I'll have a look at anything this paragon of clear thinking and clean writing publishes.

How does time function? What is ecstasy? What is illusion? How does the kundalini work? These questions and more are answered in the amazing work. In the first half, the author gives a clear and concise explanation of tantrik cosmology, explaining exactly how tantra perceives, men, women and indeed, perception itself. This is followed by a lengthy treatment of the tantrik path of spiritual illumination/transformation which dissolves the world of illusion; the second half of the book features page after page of beautiful tantrik painting & sculpture from India, Nepal and China. I cannot recommend this book too highly.

It's really, really hard to put any religion into words that someone can understand and read in one evening. Philip Rawson succeeds in this task. Part of his success is the heavy use of pictures and illustrations, which makes the essence of Tantra easily understandable to the visual learner.
