9780062510518: Essential Tibetan Buddhism

Now in paperback: a comprehensive insider’s guide to Tibetan Buddhism’s riches written for general readers by its foremost Western scholar – and the first American Tibetan Buddhist monk – Robert A. F. Thurman.

Despite its burgeoning influence, few people truly understand the core beliefs, traditions, and movements of this popular Eastern religion. Robert Thurman, professor of Indo-Tibetan studies at Columbia University, has assembled the first guide to Tibetan Buddhism that introduces the distinctive Tibetan practice through its own rich literature. He includes excerpts from The Book of the Dead as well as lesser known but comparable scriptures.

Essential Tibetan Buddhism is a part of The Essential Series, beautifully packaged works that feature the core texts of major religious traditions in definitive translations, edited by leading authorities.
