The survey of the Buddhist Tantras by Mkhas-Grub-Rje (a.d.1385-1438) is a rich literature on this topic in the Tibetan language. In accordance with Tsonkha-pa's tantric reform (the Gelugpa), after the theory about how Gautama Buddha became enlightened the author presents the non-tantric materials stipulated as preliminary for tantric study and practice. He sketches the Kriya, Carya, Yoga, and Anuttarayoga tantra divisions, showing the generation of self into deity and generation of deity in front, the remarkable meditations of dwelling in the flame and in the sound, numerous definitions of tantric terms, the rich correspondence system of the Yogatantra, the difference between `Father Tantra' and `Mother Tantra', mandala ritual including the various kinds or `initiation' or `consecration'. A Severe contraction of ritual detail allows the Tibetan author room to go into the theory at each step, including the mysterious being called samayasattva and jnanasattva, states of 'Bliss-Void', the four Voids including the Clear Light, and the three kinds of 'Evam'.

About the Author:

ALEX WAYMAN, formerly Professor of Sanskrit, Columbia University, New York, has authored well over a hundred articles for professional journals and honorary volumes in various countries.
