Dialogue on Vijñāna Bhairava Tantra

Diálogo sobre el Vijñana Bhairava Tantra - IMG 2

Owing to the publication of the book Vijñāna Bhairava Tantra. Traducció, estudi preliminar i comentaris d'Óscar Figueroa, Casa Asia and Editorial Kairós organise a dialogue where we will deepen into Vijñānabhairava. Written around the 9th century, it is an essential work in the development of Tantrism that presents a wisdom exchange between Bhairava, one of the shapes of the god Śiva, and her consort, goddess Bhairavī.

Quoted by the great masters of our time, Vijñānabhairava constitutes a classic of Hindu spirituality, with a validity that goes beyond the cultural premises of India offering modern readers an inspiring analysis of the creating power of awareness. This translation, the first one in Spanish from Sanskrit, is accompanied by an extense study on Tantric tradition, as well as a comment of one of the authorities in Indian studies in Mexico and in the Spanish speaking world: Óscar Figueroa.

Presented by:
Rafael Bueno, Politics, Society and Educational Programme Director of Casa Asia
Agustín Pániker, Director of Editorial Kairós
