Malati J. Shendge (Editor)
Synopsis Satsahasrika-hevajra-tika, a commentary on the Hevajra-tantra, a Vajrayana or Esoteric Buddhist text, is published here for the first time. It is second such commentary to be available in print. A fragment of Sanskrit text only is available, the author being Dasabhumisvara Vajragarbha. Although the Tibetan translation of the commentary available in bsTan.hgyur comments on the whole of Havajratantra, the editor has doubts about the authorship of later chapters. In the course of the commentary, the author throws light on the socio-religious ethos of his days and is highly critical of many of the then current practices. Besides this, the commentary furnishes many technical details which are difficult to understand without a guru well-versed in the esoteric lore. In order to complete the picture, the summaries of the chapters from Tibetan translation are supplied by the editor.
