"Daniel Odier's story is the stuff of dreams for the spiritual seeker. Until this book, we have had few (if any) modern first-person accounts of a Westerner's initiation into tantrism. Tantric Quest fulfills our longing to understand this mysterious method and does so admirably, describing a path where sensual delight is married with full attention to re-create our birthright of life in the garden of the Goddess.", Holly Hammond, Yoga Journal

This is an amazing book. It is short enough to read in one sitting, which I recommend, and it took me just over two hours to get through.
Almost by chance, Daniel encounters Devi, a female tantric master, in a remote Himalayan woodland. She takes him through a detailed exploration of his own spirituality using a series of very challenging, and sometimes dangerous, tasks and trials.
Shaivism is broken down into 36 tattvas. The first five are earth, water, air, ether and fire. Devi guides Daniel through making contact with every single one of the thirty-six along a very tough path.
Before it all starts, we witness the following conversation.
"What should I call you?"
"Sometimes I am called Kali, the destroyer, sometimes I am called Lalita, the playful one, sometimes I am called Kubjika, the potter, but I am always called Devi, the goddess. So call me Devi."
This is a sign of what is to come. As I said, it is a tough path to travel.
The sexual initiation is as intense, if not more so, than the rest of the path.
You can almost feel the depth and intensity of it all as you read.
Read this and feel the power.
