This study explores both the mainstream Tibetan canons of translated Buddhist classics (known as the Bka’ ’gyur and Bstan ’gyur), and the alternative canons of literature of the Nyingma sectarian traditions (known as the Rnying ma rgyud ’bum). The first section discusses the formation and transmission of Tibetan "canonical" texts, but also includes important works of reference, such as a Bka’ gdams pa handbook and several unique catalogues. It also features a report on Tibetan textual transmission in Mongolia. The second section not only presents interpretative an

How did a society on the edge of collapse and dominated by wandering bands of armed men give way to a vibrant Buddhist culture, led by yogins and scholars? Ronald M. Davidson explores how the translation and spread of esoteric Buddhist texts dramatically shaped Tibetan society and led to its rise as the center of Buddhist culture throughout Asia, replacing India as the perceived source of religious ideology and tradition. During the Tibetan Renaissance (950-1200 C.E.), monks and yogins translated an enormous number of Indian Buddhist texts. They employed the evolving literature and practices

Though his writings form the basis for studying the Middle Way in many Tibetan monasteries, the seventh century Indian master Candrakirti was widely unknown during his lifetime and in the centuries following his death. Despite this lack of recognition, Candrakirti is now celebrated as offering the most thorough and accurate vision of Nagarjuna’s view of emptiness, which in turn most fully represents the final truth of the Buddha’s teaching. In Resurrecting Candrakirti, Kevin Vose examines Candrakirti’s rise to prominence and the further elaborations the Tibetans have made on his Madhyama

Studying Tibetan Buddhism can be like entering a maelstrom of deities, rituals, and scriptures. In a new introduction to the history, the religion, and the philosophy of Tibetan Buddhism, Reginald Ray calms the storm and provides a compass for exploration. A professor and seasoned practitioner, Ray walks the line between objective historian and caring adviser. With spare precision and rich detail, he tells the story of Buddhism in Tibet, from its great progenitors in India to the larger than life transmitters to the series of schools that developed over the centuries. Ray makes no pretense at
