Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'Karma', 'Nirvana', 'Dalai Lama' ...Tibetan Buddhism is becoming increasingly common and fashionable in Western media - but this familiarity can cause its teachings and message to be misunderstood. If we are to truly learn from the rich and noble Tibetan tradition we must look beyond adverts and lifestyle magazines, exotic artifacts and spiritual sound-bites. Sangharakshita is ideally suited as our guide through the vast realm of Tibetan Buddhism, having spent many years in contact with Tibetan lamas of all schools, from whom he received several initiations. This down-to-earth account of the origin and history of Buddhism in Tibet explains the essentials of the tradition and can act as the starting point for our own noble journey.

Synopsis:

The English author of this book has spent many years in contact with Tibetan lamas within the context of a wide experience of the Buddhist tradition as a whole. The book provides a down-to-earth account of the origin and history of Buddhism in Tibet, and explains the essentials of the tradition.

Description:

Include bibliographical references (p. [131]) and index.

About the Author

After reading the Diamond Sutra, an ancient Buddhist text, at the age of 16 Sangharakshita realized that he was a Buddhist. After serving in the British Army in Southeast Asia during WWII, he remained there and after spending 20 years in India, returned to England and established the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order (1967) and Western Buddhist Order (1968).
