Secret of the Vajra World : The Tantric Buddhism of Tibet

by

Secret of the Vajra World : The Tantric Buddhism of Tibet Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides an entree into the mysterious world of Tantric (or Vajrayana) Buddhism as practiced in Tibet and as conveyed by Tibetan masters teaching in the West. The Tantric tradition is a unique collection of lesser-known texts, concepts, and meditation practices that are usually made available only to experienced and specially initiated practitioners. In an accessible and engaging style, the author demonstrates how the practice of Tantra fosters an appreciation for ordinary life as the place where ultimate revelation occurs.

Synopsis:

This comprehensive introduction to the hidden practices and traditions of Tibetan Buddhism is the companion volume to "Indestructible Truth" by the same author. It provides a look into the mysterious world of Tantric (or Vajrayana) Buddhism as practised in Tibet.
