Kiss of the Yogini : "Tantric Sex" in Its South Asian Contexts

Kiss of the Yogini : "Tantric Sex" in Its South Asian Contexts

Description

With "Kiss of the Yogini", David Gordon White sweeps away centuries of misunderstandings and misrepresentations, returning to original texts, images, and ritual practices to reconstruct the history of South Asian Tantra from the medieval period to the present day. "Kiss of the Yogini" contains White's own translations from over a dozen Tantras that have never before been translated into any European language. It will prove to be the definitive work for anyone seeking to understand Tantra and the crucial role it has played in South Asian history, society, culture, and religion.
