Author: Alex Wayman


This work opens up the subject of perhaps the most profound of Buddhist Tantras, The Guhyasamajatantra by shedding light on its relation with previous literature including the Brahmanical tradition and by revealing the elevated typa of Yoga. It goes far toward replacing the previous supposition that this Tantra can be understood by mere reading by one oblivious of the extensive commerentarial tradition that incorporates the procepts of the Gurus. The author has used the edited Sanskrit texts the Pradipaddyotana Ms the relevant texts translated into Tibetan in the Kanjur and Tanjur and thirteen Tibetan works on the Tantra by Tsong kha pa founder of the Gelugpa sect of Tibetan Buddhism.
