Kinky Buddhism: Or How to Understand Buddhism and the Guru-Disciple relationship
In the hushed corridors of spirituality, where enlightenment is pursued through serene meditation and profound contemplation, an unexplored realm beckons, shrouded in intrigue, sensuality, and liberation. Welcome to the world of "Kinky Buddhism." and the second book in the Tantric Revolutionary Center series of introductions to Buddhism.
While the term may initially raise an eyebrow or provoke a sly smile, this book delves far deeper than mere titillation. It unearths a hidden facet of Buddhism, one that marries the ancient wisdom of the East with the provocative allure of the unconventional. It offers a path to transcendence that challenges conventional notions of spirituality, encouraging seekers to explore the depths of their desires and embrace the uncharted territories of their innermost selves.
Kinky Buddhism is not an endorsement of hedonism or the reckless pursuit of pleasure. Instead, it is a reflection on how the relationships in Buddhism in general and Vajrayana in particular are based on asymmetries of power and why is this.
In this book, we will embark on a journey that explores the profound intersections of Buddhism and kink. We will unravel the paradoxes, confront the taboos, and reveal the transformative potential that arises when the two seemingly divergent worlds converge.
At its core, Kinky Buddhism is about empowerment. It is about recognizing that our enjoyments, when approached with mindfulness and consent, can be powerful agents of healing and self-discovery that takes place with one's Guru.
