READ MORE ABOUT THE PRACTICE OF TANTRA
An initiation is a part of the practice of tantra, which Lama Yeshe describes in the free book Essence of Tibetan Buddhism. In an initiation, a qualified Vajrayana teacher empowers a student to undertake certain practices. In order to read books describing such practices, one needs to have received initiation into the particular tantric deity concerned. For more detailed information, see Lama Yeshe's book Introduction to Tantra, Wisdom Publications, 1987.
