Tibetan Buddhism in Western Perspective
A scholar's freshest insights are often expressed in articles that seldom reach beyond a small circle of peers. Here, gathered for the benefit of everyone intersted in Tibetan Buddhism, are ten articles by Dr. Herbert Guenther, outstanding pioneer in Tibetan Buddhist studies. These short articles offer insights into the quest for truth and its extraordinary expression in the Buddhist teachings. Essays and excerpts from the author's translations clarify the distinctive qualities of Tibetan philosophy and religious practice.
Articles include, "Tantra and Revelation", "Toward an Experience of Being," and "Excerpts from the Gandavyuha Sutra."
