    Evola's take on Yoga and other Hindu disciplines. Precise, clear and probably better than all other readily available books on the subject. Evola's take on Yoga and other Hindu disciplines. Precise, clear and probably better than all other readily available books on the subject.

    This one took longer to finish than some of Evola's other books. Personally I found the latter chapters on kundalini yoga and various practical instructions on pranayama more instructive and inspiring than the first longer sections on the broader philosofical and 'theological' principles behind the tantric and shaktic traditions. Overall a fine introduction to the topic at hand, but only as a primer.

Overall a fine introduction to the topic at hand, but only as a primer. A more thorough study of the primary sources would be needed, and it is not always easy to connect Evola's many digressions on different topics to the overall picture. I am personally more interested in the kundalini aspects of yoga as a tool for self-empowerment and immortality, than using tantra as a transgressive antinomian path to self-realization. One also wonders to which degree Evola is talking from personal learnings and experience, and to which degree he is simply rehashing other people's teachings. All it all still a valid contribution to the topic, and piqued my interest for learning more.

    Перевод, увы, с английского и местами несколько странный (например, там, где уместно было бы, возможно, говорить о powers как о «силах» — в смысле, скажем, сверхспособностей, — идёт несколько странный, хотя понятный по намерению подвести всё под единый образец-шаблон, перевод powers как «могущества» во мн. ч.), хотя и читабельный. Сама книга, посвящённая шиваитско-шактистскому и буддийскому тантризму, выходит за пределы любых переводов и несёт в себе ценное содержание.

Сама книга, посвящённая шиваитско-шактистскому и буддийскому тантризму, выходит за пределы любых переводов и несёт в себе ценное содержание. Особенно понравилось сделанное Эволой изложение содержания тибетской книги мёртвых на основе классического перевода в издании Эванса-Вентца. Ещё понравилось приложение, посвящённое шактизму и движению «Верных любви» (к этому движению, по словам автора, принадлежал Данте). Благодаря этому приложению в обновлённом свете можно увидеть идеи Вечной Женственности, которые захватили поэтов и мыслителей Серебряного века. В общем, классический, харизматичный труд по теме тантризма.

    Generally good treatment of primarily Hindu but also Buddhist tantrism. Basic information but drawn mostly from the source material of the tantras. Some interesting parallels with Western traditions are noted.

    Racist, misogynistic nonsense. Written by a fascist. Read only if you're a neo-nazi. Racist, misogynistic nonsense. Written by a fascist. Read only if you're a neo-nazi.

    Definitely not suitable for beginners. There are many terms that one cannot understand if he/she is not into two Hindu movements, Tantrism and Shaktism.
