Book Description
For those who wonder what relation actual Tantric practices bear to the Tantric sex currently being marketed so successfully in the West, David Gordon white has a simple answer. There is none. Sweeping away centuries of misunderstandings and misrepresentations, white returns 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 focuses on what white identifies as the sole truly distinctive features of South Asian tantra: Sexualized ritual rites. Such practices centered on the exchange of powerful, transformative sexual fluids between male practitioners and wild female bird and animal spirits known as Yoginis. It was only by drinking the sexual fluids of the Yoginis that men could enter the family of the supreme, godhead and thereby obtain supernatural powers and transform themselves into gods.
