The Tantric Aim: What is Vajrayana for?

Well, what do you want it for?

Most traditional descriptions of the goal of Vajrayana—metaphysical theories of cosmic enlightenment—may not seem believable, achievable, or even meaningful.

Others are more compatible with a modern worldview. In this section of Vividness, I suggest that Vajrayana can result in mastery, power, playfulness, and nobility. Those are aspects of traditional theory, and they seem both attractive and realistic.
