"This is the first comprehensive introduction to Tibetan Buddhism. Beginning with a summary of the Indian origins of Tibetan Buddhism and how it eventually was brought to Tibet, it explores Tibetan Mahayana philosophy and tantric methods for personal transformation. The four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism as well as Bon are explored in depth. This book is a systematic and wonderfully clear presentation of Tibetan Buddhist views and practices." -- back cover.
