Description About the author
 
The Guhyasamaja Tantra is one of the Unexcelled Yoga Tantras of Vajrayana Buddhism. In the initial, generation-stage practice, one engages in a prescribed sequence of visualizations of oneself as an enlightened being in a purified environment in order to prepare one's mind and body to engage in the second stage: the completion stage. The latter works directly with the subtle energies of one's mind and body and transforms them into the enlightened mind and body of a buddha. In this book, Gyume Khensur Lobsang Jampa, a former abbot of Gyume Tantric College, provides complete instructions on how to practice the generation stage of Guhyasamaja, explaining the visualizations, offerings, and mantras involved, what they symbolize, and the purpose they serve. These instructions, which are usually imparted only orally from master to student after the student has been initiated into the Guhyasamaja mandala, are now being published in English for the first time and are supplemented by extracts from key written commentaries in the footnotes to support practitioners who have received the required transmissions from a holder of this lineage. The complete self-generation ritual is included in the second part of the book, with the Tibetan on facing pages, which can be used by those who read Tibetan and want to recite the ritual in Tibetan.
