Important Tantric teachings originated a thousand years ago: the island of Java in present-day Indonesia. This book illustrates the history of Tantrism in Java with more than a hundred photographs of temples, statues and iconography dedicated to the system – some rarely seen before, including the recently-excavated “white temple” of Yogyakarta – and accounts of contemporary practices in the shrines, cemeteries and secret schools of Java.

It is this Tantra – the Tantra of Java – that has influenced secret societies, mystics, alchemists, Kabbalists and magicians for hundreds if not thousands of years. This book tells the story of how human sexuality became a metaphor and a template for both spiritual transformation and the manipulation of reality; of how quite a lot of sexual acts and psycho-biological states became the basis for a comprehensive cosmology that incorporates every aspect of human experience.

Once in a while the secrets are buried where you least anticipate finding them. Once in a while they are hidden in plain sight. Once in a while… they are both. In the (currently) largest Moslem country, we will discover a path of Tantra so unique, yet so vibrant and alive, that we will be able to be astonished that no one had heard of it until now.
