About the Book

 

This volume consists of eight studies, each one
bringing to light new material of use to comparative religionists and
historians of religion, as well asto students of Tibetan Buddhism. These
studies are based on critical scrutiny of indigenous sources and, in many
cases, the learned opinion of native Tibetan scholars. The studies are
organized around two dominant themes in Tibetan religious life-the quest for
clarity and insight via visionary exploration and philosophical exploration.

 

This is an important collection, because Tibetan
Buddhist studies are becoming increasingly important and sophisticated, and
this brings together the work of many of the best young Tibetologists in North
America. MaI1Y of the areas covered in the essays, e.g., the Mani bKa bum, Sa
skya meditational systems, Tibetan sacred biography, and the evolution of
deities, are important topics that have received little scholarly attention.
Here, they are presented authoritatively with careful contextualization of
Tibetan Buddhist doctrines within historical context.
