  • The first complete explanation in English of the Highest Yoga Tantra practice of Heruka body mandala
  • Sublime methods for transforming our ordinary minds and attaining pure selfless joy
  • The actual method to accomplish the supreme bliss of full enlightenment in this lifetime

In general, Vajrayana is the actual quick path to enlightenment, but whether or not we attain enlightenment quickly through Vajrayana practice depends upon our faith, motivation and understanding. In particular, gaining the realizations of Heruka body mandala – the very essence of Vajrayana – depends upon our having strong faith in the instructions and a clear understanding of their meaning. Then, with a pure motivation, free from selfish intention, we should practise these instructions sincerely and continually until we attain our final goal.
