Description About the author Contents
 
The Text and the illustrations in this book take the reader to the Bumthang region, the spiritual heartland of Bhutan, with its legacy of miracles and sages throughout many centuries.

The Esoteric doctrine of the hidden treasures and texts, the Terma, is one of the least known yet most fascinating aspects of Himalayan Buddhism, where it is important within the Nygma School. the subject of both skepticism and misinterpretation, it has attracted growing attention in resent years.

Created and concealed by the Tantric master Guru Padmasanvaba over a thousand years ago, these spiritual treasures have since then been revealed at predestined times, in circumstances shrouded in prophecy and mystery. It is a living tradition, for new Termas continue to be revealed up t our own times.

This study of the life and works of Pemalingpa (1450-1521), prophesied as one of the five great Treasures Revealed, illustrates the meaning of such figures within the context of their own cultures. The book also serves to highlight some contemporary questions abut our understanding and interpretation of Himalayan Buddhist cultures.
