Description About the author Contents
The Yoginis Eye: Comprehensive Introduction to Buddhist Tantra, Volume I: Systemization and Interpretation introduces a new translation series, Classics of the Early Sakya, which will focus on the extensive literature of the Sakya Lamdre lineage of the Hevajra Tantra cycle of revelation. This first volume of introduction is the earliest book of its type and comprehensive treatment of the subject matter to have been written, and initiated the scholarly study of Tibetan Buddhist Tantra. Subsequent studies in all lineages were built on the foundation established by this book.

The Yoginis Eye has served as the introductory textbook for the study of Sakya Tantra continuously for over 800 years. Over the centuries, the textbook has been supplemented by a total of fifteen commentaries and study guides written by the most learned scholars of the Sakya tradition, including Lama Dampa Sonam Gyaltsen (13121375), Yeshe Gyaltsen (1300s1406), Ngorchen Kunga Zangpo (13821450), Lowo Khenchen Sonam Lhundrup (14561532), Ngorchen Konchok Lhundrup (14971547), Amezhap Ngawang Kunga Sonam (15971659), and Dezhung Chopel Jamyang Kunga Namgyal (1880s mid-1950s). This first English edition contains the translation of thirteen of these study guides, excluding all repetitive sections, inserted into the original book in the appropriate context.

Starting in the twelfth century with this book, the early Sakya lineage widely established Buddhist Tantra as an authentic, efficacious, and superior spiritual practice, one that is now being fully transmitted to the modern Western world.
