The gateways to wonder and delight are flung open wide for all to enter. At once a beautiful love song and an encyclopedia of yogic techniques, the cherished text known as the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra shimmers with new effulgence in Lorin Roche's The Radiance Sutras. Lorin brings us his unique perspective on each of 112 Sanskrit teachings, along with his one-of-a-kind guidance in how to meditate with, embody, and practice them—what he describes as "answering the call of the sutras you love."

Here is an invitation to experience directly the ecstatic depths of yoga as revealed by the divine partners Shiva and Shakti, through an intimate exploration of:

  • The divinity that is permeating your body at this very moment
  • The alchemical power of Sanskrit
  • Yoga meditation—harmonizing all the elements and levels of your being
  • The depths of your connection to the energies of life

Taken as a whole, this teaching is startling in its breadth and the huge range of human experience that it encompasses. This is a book to savor one phrase at a time, over a period of days or years or a lifetime. With The Radiance Sutras, yoga and meditation students everywhere can nurture their own relationship with these living wisdom teachings.

Great Book Review by Alec

I really like this translation. I work with it every day. Very nice.
What I would really like is an audio version with the spoken Sanskrit and English translation. That would be great!
How about it Sounds Ture?

I am waiting to hear from you. ;)

It's a "Keeper" Review by Elisabeth

I love this book so much and read parts of it during long poses in my yin yoga classes. It is so beautiful and to think it was passed by word of mouth until finally being written down in 800 A.D. What a beautiful guide.

Review for The Radiance Sutras Review by Jean M

I also have Sally Kempton's incredibly wonderful meditations on the Vijnana Bhairava. Together, these two works form a powerful combo. Lorin Roche's translations are stunning in their poetic power to transport the reader into the intended experience. Beautiful.

Review for The Radiance Sutras Review by Terri

It’s hard to put into words the place this book holds in my heart.

It’s the first book I turn to when I am feeling lost and want to find my way back to center, to what really matters.

When I need to be reassured of the great and beautiful mystery of this world, the expansive dance of this life. And my place in it.

I open it randomly to a short sutra - the words vibrate with deep, playful wisdom. It ignites the heart; it nourishes the soul. And illuminates the way back home.

I give a copy to everyone I love.
Thank you, Lorin, for this beautiful book.
And thank you, Sounds True, for a digital version that I can always have with me!
