Sexuality, Magic and Politics in Tibetan Buddhism
* Book: “The Shadow of the Dalai Lama: Sexuality, Magic and Politics in Tibetan Buddhism. by Victor und Victoria Trimondi, 1999
Via John Heron, note from Michel Bauwens:
"In Sacred Science, John Heron calls for a 'self-generating spiritual culture', based on participative processes. As a counter-example, he refers to a remarkable book by the Trimondi couple, whih describes the secret ritual politics behind Lama-ism, and how it is finally based on a total destruction of the female principle. These kinds of critiques, says Heron, should clear the way for a spirituality that is finally free of gender oppression. It is all part of a return to the world of life, of immanence, of engagement with relationships. A dipolar spirituality should keep both life and consciousness, immanence and transcendence, in balance."
