Description Contents
Simultaneously exegetical and apologetic, the Lamp that Integrates the Practices is a systematic and comprehensive exposition of the most advanced yogas of the Esoteric Communion (Guhyasamaja) Tantra as espoused by the Noble Tradition, an influential school of interpretation within the Mahayoga traditions of Indian Buddhist esoterism. Basing itself on the Five Stages (Pancakrama) of Nagarjuna, Aryadeva's work is perhaps the earliest prose example of a "stages of the mantra path" work in Sanskrit, and its studied gradualism exerted immense influence on later Tibetan tradition.

This volume presents the Lamp in a tri-lingual format: its Sanskrit original critically-edited from recently-identified manuscripts, a critical edition of the eleventh-century Tibetan translation by Rin-chen Bzang-po (including notes on readings found in lost, alternative translations), and a thoroughly-annotated English translation. Includes an introduction discussing the Guhyasamaja literature, the works of the Noble Tradition, and analyzing in detail the contents of the Lamp. Features a comprehensive, tri-lingual glossary.
