According to Christopher Wallis and Christopher Tompkins of The Foundation for Yoga, "The original scriptures of Tantra have remained almost entirely unpublished. The 600-page proposed new book, temporarily titled the Tantric Studies Reader, is an attempt to redress this, and stimulate more research and scholarship in this crucially important field. Such work is important both for our understanding of the development of Indian spiritual philosophy, and (we believe) for helping to stimulate the next phase in the growth of human consciousness. Even though this is a scholarly volume, it will ultimately impact the yoga communities through providing material for contemporary teachers to work with: allowing them to offer a more deeply rooted and authentic transmission of yogic and tantric teachings, practices, mantras, and so on." The organization is seeking $18,000 to get the book published. For more information, visit http://thefoundationforyoga.web.officelive.com/default.aspx.
