  TANTRA

The shamanic ecstatic edge-yoga of Buddhism, just as the ceremonial magic of the renaissance centuries was the shamanic ecstatic (forbidden) edge of Christian mysticism.

Tantra, while repressed, was much less repressed in the east than magic was in the west, so, as an esoteric system, it is probably the best-preserved "magical" (as in a-rational/meta-rational, symbolic, and ecstatic-visual) esoteric system. In the future, rigorous study of the tantra texts and artwork will give us an important standard against which to measure hundreds of other systems of thought.

And, with it's exploration as sex as an artform of consciousness manipulation, it tickles the attention of the lizard brain and the mammalian brain. The modern model of enlightenment requires  sexual health and integration as well as spiritual, mental, etc health and maturity; and the techniques of tantra can be a huge aid to sexual self-development.

Presumably because sex does sell to we big-brained animals, we humans, there are a number of pretty high quality books in print and available, plus a lot of simpler, popular books.
