"Passions of Innocence" is the perfect--if somewhat oxymoronic--title for this book. Unlike most books, this one demands personal experience of both love--erotic, filial, and friendly--and celibacy in order to gain the most benefit from it. For the record, celibacy means more than not having a spouse or partner in love. It is a way of life that takes the desire for sexual love and uses that desire to enter into a universally transcending way of life. Tantric celibacy is a unique type of celibacy, and its true meaning is completely different from its portrayal in pop do-it-yourself books. The sublimation and perfection of eros in the context of celibacy alone (without even adding the Tantric aspect) takes a lifetime of living to begin to comprehend. This book can help the individual on this kind of journey, but in my opinion, it will be mostly of academic interest to others. I may be in error, but I am speaking as a nun of 65 who has remained celibate her entire life, while trying to grow into the depths and heights of this kind of all-inclusive love. I have some personal experience in tantra, but not enough to judge the depth of the writer's accuracy. However, from my own limited knowledge, I believe he has done a credible job of presenting at least the essentials of tantric celibate eros.
