Banyen's Description: 

In 1975, in an isolated Himalayan forest, Daniel Odier met Lalita Devi, a Tantric yogini who took him on a mystical journey beyond the limits of sexual experience to transcend the ego, recognize the true self, and rediscover the Divine nature of absolute love. Now, after decades of integrating the profound wisdom of his master, Odier shares the secret teachings and self-realization practices of the Kashmiri Mahamudra (meditation on the mind itself) and the Pratyabhijna (the School of Sudden Recognition).

The author offers vivid, experiential descriptions of his sessions with Lalita Devi wherein she imparted the essential principles of the Mahamudra and the yoga of emotions to him physically, verbally, and energetically. Revealing how his teacher knew the principal texts of Kashmiri Shivaism by heart, he offers new translations of the most significant sacred books, including the Shiva Sutras, the Pratybhijna Hrdayam Sutra, and the Spandakarika as well as many chants and poems from the yogini tradition, each presented in language that preserves their spontaneous mystic flow and restores their original ancient female origins.

Sharing both the author’s intellectual study of these texts as well as his direct transmissions from his teacher, with each perspective shedding light on the other, this book offers a profound inside look at authentic Tantric teachings.

“Crazy Wisdom of the Yogini is a culminating treasure from one of the great tantric teacher-practitioner-scholars of our time. Daniel’s sharing of the heart to heart transmission from Kashmiri yogini Lalita Devi elucidates and enlivens the inner teachings, meditations, visualizations, poetry, dance, and living practices for realizing and embodying the transforming natural state of Mahamudra. Savor this transforming offering and prepare to be pierced by the wisdom from the heart of the yoginis.” Shiva Rea, author of Tending the Heart Fire
