The texts are arranged for different levels of difficulty and length. From this body of texts the most significant are to be chosen and translated with the background of the study of the historical texts and the secondary literature. This is my modern account of the complexity and size of the tantra. Here the huge mass of work that has to be done and the impossibility of the written translation without financial sponsoring becomes obvious! Translating tantra in the modern world.

Below in order to introduce into the tantra now a translation-sketch of original descriptions of the history of the tantra. This makes the translators problems even more clear:.

This has then been accomplished as the action guardian]] las kyi mgon po and if oneself and in front both have to be accomplished as father-mother kissing countenances then this has been accomplished as primordial knowledge guardian ye shes kyi mgon po.

The Mahakalatantra

Many tantric texts seem to be unintelligible, because of their very high psychological and mystical level and complexity. Tantra is a method, extremely complicated and hard to grasp for some, so the path may be considered dangerous. Traditional teachers will attempt to guide their students by having personal talks and so forth, while attempting to offer psychological guidance during this hazardous undertaking. One must understand that the text refers to the problems of the day, during the times of the tantra itself. The mysterious texts and archetypal deities often become a source of misunderstanding etc. For example, one might see a wrathful protector and assume it has the authorization to hurt everyone in its path.
