The Radiance Sutras
112 Tantra Yoga Teachings for Opening to the Divine in Everyday Life
By Lorin Roche, Ph.D.
Foreword by Shiva Rea

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 coveted text known as the Bhairava Tantra shimmers with new effulgence in Lorin Roche's The Radiance Sutras. Lorin brings us fresh commentaries 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 calls "answering the call of the sutras you love."

Here is an invitation to experience directly the ecstatic depths of tantric 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 our connection to the energies of life

"Taken as a whole, this teaching is startling in its breadth, in the huge range of human experience that it encompasses," writes Lorin. "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, now yoga students everywhere can nurture their own relationship with these living wisdom teachings.

"Lorin’s Radiance Sutras evoke spontaneous joyful insights into the nature of reality, self, and existence. I have always felt that there is a passionate heart implicit in the Sanskrit language. Lorin unfolds the underlying significance of the Vijñāna Bhairava text beautifully, revealing layers of meaning woven into poetry to awaken contact with the Soul."  – Deepak Chopra MD, Author of You Are The Universe

"If you love Rumi, Hafiz, The Tao, if you love words dancing out of the mystery, welcome to The Radiance Sutras: these are among the most profound and luminous verses you will ever read."
-JACK KORNFIELD, author of 
A Path with Heart 

"If you are wild and longing for a more profound experience of love, this book is the perfect companion and teacher. If you're afraid to explore the inner reaches of your heart but long for that freedom, you can trust the magnificent journey The Radiance Sutras offers. You will be blessed by this book – it will forever change you in the most positive, surprising ways."
- JUDITH ORLOFF, MD, author of 
The Ecstasy of Surrender

"Lorin Roche's poetic renderings of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra are a gift to anyone who loves the inner world. They arise from the currents of his own meditation, grounded in deep practice. These verses can draw light into your sitting practices and shed wisdom into your days. Keep this book by your bed, hold its inspiration in your heart, and let these verses pulse through your life with the radiance so of the tantric revelation."
- SALLY KEMPTON, author of 
Meditation for the Love of It and Awakening Shakti

“Lorin Roche’s 
Radiance Sutras present the most inspiring translation of the Vijnana Bhairava Sutras I have ever encountered. It is juicy, hip, intelligent, inspiring and the best companion for your daily life. We all need daily reminders to 'Celebrate the boundary where body meets infinity.' This book is a must read!’”
- MARGOT ANAND, author of 
The Art of Everyday Ecstasy and The Art of Sexual Ecstasy

“Lorin Roche is a tantric troubadour! His engaging and lively version of The Radiance Sutas captures the joy and spontaneity of the original Sanskrit and is a unique window onto the meditative experience.”
- DAVID GORDON WHITE, author of 
Sinister Yogis and Kiss of the Yogini

“A treasure trove of invaluable spiritual jewels. Pick up any of these jewels and behold, as precious esoteric knowledge suffuses your entire being with ineffable joy, love, and ‘knowing.’”
