Description

The paramount teachings of the most illustrious teachers of Tibet and India. Who have transmitted their teachings to the peoples of Occident, are the base of this book. In book I, hereof, an account of the marvellous superhuman life and secret doctrines of the Great Guru Padmasambhava, who in the eighth century, on an invitation of the Tibetan king, travelled to Tibet and converted Tibet into Tantric Buddhism. Book II expounds the quintessence of the Supreme Path, the Mahayana, and reveals the yogic method of attaining the Great Liberation of Nirvana by means of knowing the one mind, the cosmic All-conscious ness, without recourse to the postures, breathings, and other techniques commonly associated with lower yogas. The aphorisms of Guru Phaldampa Sangay, comprising Book III are supplemented to Book II.

Dr C G Jung, has contributed a lengthy psychological commentary. He analyses the difference between Eastern and Western thought-process, and suggests that the sages of the Orient appear to have recognized in their own peculiarly oriental manner the unconscious in man long prior to its discovery by European psychologists.
