Abstract:

Thanks to the international celebrity of the Dalai Lama, Tibetan Buddhism is attracting more attention than at any time in its history. There have been numerous specialist studies of individual Tibetan texts, however, this study focuses on the rich variety of types of Tibetan discourse. It brings to bear the methodological insights of contemporary human sciences and, at the same time, offers to non-specialist readers an impression of the broad domain of Tibetan religious and philosophical thought. Ranging widely over the immense corpus of Tibetan literature, Kapstein illuminates many of the distinctive Tibetan contributions and points out some of the insights.; This book is intended for scholars and students of Buddhism and Asian Studies.
