Tantrik Traditions in Tibet
Tantrik Traditions in Tibet
Description
Author’s Note

The Tantrik traditional lore in Tibet incorporates the most essential details of Indian Tantra and the flowerings of the Tibetan genius. It consists of diverse strands, neatly synthesized in doctrine as well as practice. The present book seeks to trace the story of this synthesis. It is not intended to be an objective assessment, but a personal assimilation of the Tibetan teachings in my own spiritual endeavour, alongside the Vedic and Tantrik background.

I have been helped in this work by a large number of writings, in English, Hindi, Sanskrit and Tibetan. Even here, the benefit that I have derived has been synthetic and syncretistic. I owe a deep debt of gratitude to all the authors who have communicated to me the spirit of the Tibetan teachings. Likewise, for illustrating the book, I have drawn from different sources, collected over several years. I am grateful to all those who have provided this rich material, exceedingly interesting and valuable. For the illustration of Tibetan deities and saints the most important source is the volume on Buddhist Iconography, Satta-pitaka series (Vol. 342), Bhadrakalpika Sutra Pantheon (vol., II) by Lokesh Chandra, published by Aditya Prakashan, New Delhi (1987). I have spent hours, days, months and years contemplating on the excellent reproductions in this volume, contemplating on the spiritual and cultural values of these illustrations. This is an unrivalled treasure of visualization. Words fail to record my indebtedness to this publication.

I have prepared this volume, not so much to communicate the sublime teachings to others as to crystallize in my own mind and heart the contribution of the Tibetan Saints to the spiritual content of the Tantra. I thank my friends Shri Naresh Gupta and Shri Sunil Gupta of the Indian Books Centre, Delhi, for having persuaded me to prepare this volume for publication.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
