TANTRA

THEOLOGIE DE L'AMOUR E DE LA LIBERTE

Pourquoi y a-t-il des sculptures érotiques sur les étais des pagodes de Katmandou ? Quel rapport existe-t-il entre le sexe et le sacré ?

Dans cet ouvrage, les auteurs explorent le Tantra et les rituels sexuels qu'il comporte, notamment à travers les photographies de nombreux temples.

Dans la pratique du bouddhisme tantrique, la sexualité n'est pas considérée comme impure.
