About This Book

This volume provides a comprehensive survey of Indian Buddhism and its subsequent establishment in Tibet where it was transferred more or less complete preceding its demise in northern India in the 13th century AD. It is especially informative on the tantric period of Buddhist theory and practice from the 8th to 13th centuries, but also deals at length with the earlier evolution of Buddhist doctrines, the "Three Turnings of the Wheel", during the first thousand years. Thereafter the author deals mainly with the Buddhist conversion of Tibet.
