From the Publisher
INTRODUCTION, EXPOSITION, AND SUPPLEMENT Dzong-ka-bas presentation of Yoga Tantra is introduced by His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, in the first part of this book. This introduction is drawn mainly from his lectures on Dzong-ka-bas text given in Dharmsala, India, in 1979, but also from lectures given in the summer of 2002 and from private discussions. The Dalai Lamas commentaries included in the first two books in this series were translated and edited from private teachings in Dharmsala in 1974. Dzong-ka-bas exposition of Yoga Tantra comprises the second part of this book. The third part is a supplement on the central practices of the five manifest enlightenments and the four seals, written by Dzong-ka-bas student Ke-drup-ge-lek-bel-sang. The fourth and final part is my brief formulation of the steps of Yoga Tantra practice, drawn from the Dalai Lamas, Dzong-ka-bas and Ke-drup-ge-lek-bel-sangs explanations. The First Pachen Lamas a depiction of the five manifest enlightenments is given in an Appendix.
From the Back Cover
The Dalai Lama opens the door to the topic of Yoga Tantra with an extraordinarily detailed teaching on a classic text. Rarely in the Dalai Lama's lifetime has he given teachings of such a nature on this topic, about which so little is understood. There follows a translation of Dzong-ka-ba's The Great Exposition of Secret Mantra: Yoga Tantra, one of his most important works and a monument of Tibetan Buddhist literature, and the basis for the Dalai Lama's teaching. This is an invaluable book for anyone who is practicing or interested in Buddhist tantra in general.See all Product description
