Banyen's Description: 

The gateways to wonder and delight are flung open wide for all to enter. At once a beautiful love song and an encyclopedia of yogic techniques, the cherished text known as the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra shimmers with new effulgence in Lorin Roche's The Radiance Sutras. Lorin brings us his unique perspective on each of 112 Sanskrit teachings, along with his one-of-a-kind guidance in how to meditate with, embody, and practice them—what he describes as “answering the call of the sutras you love.”

Meditate on the Self as being Vast as the sky,
a body of energy
Extending forever in all directions.

Here is an invitation to experience directly the ecstatic depths of yoga as revealed by the divine partners Shiva and Shakti, through an intimate exploration of:

  • The divinity that is permeating your body at this very moment
  • The alchemical power of Sanskrit
  • Yoga meditation—harmonizing all the elements and levels of your being
  • The depths of your connection to the energies of life.

Your heart sees by its own light.
In meditation, adore the subtle fire
The light that you see by
Is the light that comes from inside.

Taken as a whole, this teaching is startling in its breadth and the huge range of human experience that it encompasses. This is a book to savor one phrase at a time, over a period of days or years or a lifetime. With The Radiance Sutras, yoga and meditation students everywhere can nurture their own relationship with these living wisdom teachings.

Being transformed by even one of these practices,
Fullness of experience develops breath by breath.
One day the desire of the self for the great Self
Is consummated.

Lorin has brought the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra alive for a wide audience in a way similar to how Coleman Barks revived the poetry of the great Sufi teacher, Rumi. These poetic interpretations have brought the vibratory wisdom of the tantras to the most neglected places within Western embodiment… He has opened a doorway into the tantric realization of the divya deha, the divine body, the shimmering flow of embodied consciousness manifesting as Shakti and returning to infinite potency as Shiva. It is with great celebration that this edition—complete with Sanskrit Devanagari script, transliteration and pronunciation—goes out into the world.” —Shiva Rea, from the foreword
