Introduction to Tibetan Buddhism  

This is the first thorough introduction to Tibetan Buddhism, its doctrines, practices, history and major figures. Beginning with a summary of its Indian origins and how it was brought to Tibet, it explores Tibetan Mahayana philosophy and tantric methods for transformation involving visualization, ritual and meditation. The tantric systems of the four main lineages are explored impartially and in depth. A comprehensive and invaluable book list accompanies each chapter. This systematic and clear presentation of Tibetan Buddhism will delight new readers as well as those already knowledgeable of the subject. We highly recommend it.
