Description About the author
 
Amongst most other forms of Tibetan literature, the genre of Mgur - songs of spiritual realization - stand out for their startingly and unusually sincere descriptions of inner thoughts, feelings and experiential knowledge.
This book is the first commentary in Western literature on the collected Mgur of one of its still largely unknown masters, the Tibetan scholar and siddha Skal ldan rgya mtsho (1606-1677).
The author convincingly deals with Skal ldan rgya mthso's as a distinctive figure in religious history and as an author. Tibetan Songs of Realization also provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of his work, with translation, as well as (an assessment of) the full biographical and auto-biographical data available.
With a unique CD containing the author's own recordings of his songs as they are still sung today.

Tibetan Songs of Realization, Victoria Sujata, Brill, Hardcover + CD, 2005, 462 Pages, $175.00
