Description Contents
 
The Secret Autobiographies of a Tibetan Visionary-
Apparitions of the Self , is a groundbreaking investigation into what is known in Tibetan as " secret biography." an exceptional, rarely studied literary genre that presents a personal exploration of intimate religious experiences. In this volume Janet Gyatso focuses on the outstanding pair of secret biographies by the famed Tibetan visionary, Jigme Lingpa(1730-1798). whose poetic and self-conscious writings are as much about the nature of his own identity,memory and the undecidabilities of autobiographical truth as they are narrations of the actual content of his experiences.
