Abstract:

Provides a comprehensive survey of Indian Buddhism and its subsequent establishment in Tibet. It concentrates on the tantric period of Buddhist theory and practice, from the eighth to the thirteenth century, when the Tibertans were actively engaged in absorbing all they could find of Buddhist culture and religion into their own country. The author emphasizes the significant role played by the Central Asian kingdoms along the ancient Silk Route in the gradual process of Tibertan conversion.
