Overview for Tibetan Yoga and Secret Doctrines
To embody orally transmitted traditions and teachings relating to texts collected from Late Lama Kazi Dawasamdup and to place on records not only a 'Catena' (of carefully made translations of text) which are still a subject of inquiring for Occidental countries, all these have been successfully attempted by this book. Most attracting and interesting philosophy and religious text for Western thought described in principal 'yogas' and meditation adopted by many Indian and Tibetan philosophers including Tilopa, Naropa, Marpaand Milarepa for attaining 'Right Knowledge' have been also described in a lucid and subtle style. The seven principal texts which belong to a date long way beyond the time to which the actual manuscripts and blockprints can be referred by this book. The related studies of these 'seven' (Gampopa's Supreme Path, the Epitome of the Great Symbol, the Epitome of the Six Doctrines, the Transference of the Consciousness, the Method of Eradicating the Lower self, the Fivefold Wisdom Attribute of the Long, and Essence of the Transcendental Wisdom) open a new horizon of study for scholars of related disciplines. General introduction, a brief account of Buddhism before each treatise helps common reader which is in contrast to the European conception of religion, philosophy and science.
