  • The crowning cultural achievement of medieval India, Tantric Buddhism is known in the west primarily for the sexual practices of its adherents, who strive to transform erotic passion into spiritual ecstasy. Historians of religion have long held that the enlightenment thus attempted was for men only and that women in the movement were at best marginal and subordinate and at degraded and exploited.
