From Library Journal:

Head of the Himalayn International Institute, Tiguanit offers a clear, calm, open guide to Tantric practices that are often shrouded in mysterious language; mantras, chakras, and symbolic hand-gestures are all clearly explained and illustrated. This primer is perhaps as good a printed guide to esoteric Hindu practice as the uninitiated Western seeker can hope to find. For larger collections.

Reviews:

"Pandit Rajmani is perhaps the most important teacher of Tantra in America today. His work is both practical and accessible, while maintaining a deep spiritual and meditative vision. His insight is original and creative but in harmony with lasting traditions and proven teachings. TANTRA UNVEILED is an inspiring work that shows the reader the keys to mind-body transformation, to a personal and spiritual unfoldment that integrates our full human potential." -- -David Frawley, author of Yoga and Ayurveda

"Tantra Unveiled is a most valuable addition to the literature on Tantra. It combines excellent scholarship with an initiate's firsthand knowledge of the subject. Through many colorful anecdotes of his own encounters with Tantric adepts, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait affords his readers a unique glimpse into the living heart of real Tantra. He also generously shares with them a precious practical ritual of the Sri Vidya school." -- Georg Feuerstein, Ph.D: Author of The Yoga Tradition, The Shambhala Encyclopedia of Yoga, ect; Director of Yoga Research Center

"Tantra...has for too long been portrayed as a religion of sexual excess...Pandit Tigunait clarifies these and other misconceptions in Tantra Unveiled...[His] level of erudition...hold[s] the reader's attention from beginning to end as he portrays Tantra...as an experiential path...The book is chock full of detailed information...a worthy addition to any numinous bookshelf." -- Dr. Robert E. Svoboda, BAMS Author, Aghora: At the Left Hand of God; Faculty, The Ayurvedic Institute
