Ancient Tantra is an interesting read.  Rings true (of course anything is true till disproven) and sounds like other things I've read in terms of Tantra culturally coming from Western Africa...Check it out!

Tantra: the Art of Conscious Loving by Charles and Caroline Muir

This should get you started. There are many, many authors with wonderful books on Tantra. These are simply a sampling.



Bhagavan Das  My favorite for Kirtan msic, Bhagavan Das has some increadible CDs.  Just check it out!

David Newman Music David Newman has some very beautiful and spiritually oriented music.  You can listen to him on his website.  We use some of his music in our classes.  We also like his soon to be wife, Mira, who has her own CD out.  I like her folk songs that are interspersed with the chants.

Kalidas Music  Kalidas has some nice sounds and interesting chants.  Some CDs are like remakes of others but different.  There's some U-Tube stuff on him too now.  It's nice to hear a variety of Kali chants too.

Raphael and Kutira have lovely music as well. Especially for Tantra and meditation. 

If you enjoy Kirtan music and are in Chicago, Yoga Now has monthly events including Kirtans from local and visiting artists.



A Tantric Dictionary or glossary of terms for you to peruse has had multiple donors of words and their definitions. Some of these words and/or definitions have gotten away from me during the editing. Sometimes you'll see something missing, confusing or just plain wrong. Well, there's always an opportunity for growth and rewriting. In breath and heart!
