Description About the author
 
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 Brahamical tradition and by revealing the elevated type 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 commentarial tradition that incorporates the precepts of the Gurus.

The author has used the edited Sanskrit texts, the Pradipoddyotana Ms,the relevant texts translated into Tibetan in the Kanjur & Tanjur, and thirteen Tibetan works on the Tantra by Tsong-kha-pa, founder of the Gelugpa sect of Tibetan Buddhism.

Author Alex Wayman, Professor Emeritus of Sanskrit, Columbia University, NY is in the forefront of Western Buddhist scholarship by his series of books in both tantric and non-tantric Buddhism based on over 40 years of researches.


Yoga of the Guhyasamajatantra, The Arcane Lore of Forty Verses, by Alex Wayman, 388 pages, $25.00.
