"In this work - a companion to the highly popular Tibetan Book of the Dead - Evans-Wentz presents seven authentic Tibetan yoga texts that first appeared in English in 1935." "Amid photographs and reproductions of yoga paintings and manuscripts, readers will encounter some of the principal meditations used by Hindu and Tibetan gurus and philosophers throughout the ages in the attainment of Right Knowledge and Enlightenment. Special commentaries precede each translated text, and a comprehensive introduction contrasts the tenets of Buddhism with European notions of religion, philosophy, and science."

"In this biography of Milarepa, readers gain a perspective of the celebrated man's struggles, work, and insight. Moreover, W.Y.

But the story of Milarepa is not solely about religion; it also addresses the legacy that followed the death of one of the greatest religious gurus, exploring questions of lineage and legitimacy that were important in the centuries after Milarepa died."--BOOK JACKET
