   schema:reviewBody ""Unknown to the Western world until its first publication in 1954, this work explicates the quintessence of the Supreme Path, or Mahayana, and fully reveals the yogic method of attaining Enlightenment. Such attainment can happen, as shown here, by means of knowing the One Mind, the cosmic All-Consciousness, without recourse to the postures, breathings, and other techniques associated with the lower yogas. Also presented here is a thirty-five page commentary by the eminent psychoanalyst Dr. C.G. Jung and a one hundred page General Introduction from editor W.Y. Evans-Wentz. The former discusses differences in Eastern and Western modes of thought and equates the "collective unconscious" with the Buddhist Enlightened Mind; while the latter explains several key names and notions (such as Nirvana) with the lucidity, ease, and sagacity that are this scholar's hallmark." "Although the original text of this yoga belongs to the Bardo Thodol series of treatises concerning various methods of attaining transcendence, authorship of this particular volume is attributed to the legendary Padma-Sambhava. Padma-Sambhava's text is preceded by an account of the great guru's own life and secret doctrines and is followed by the testamentary teachings of the Guru Phadampa Sangay, which are meant to augment the thought of the other gurus discussed herein."--Jacket." ;
