Author: Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye, Tharngu Rinpoche and translated by Sarah Harding
A unique guide to the practice of Tibetan Buddhist tantra which explains the essential points of creative visualization, drawing on experiential explanations from two great masters. Jamgon Kongtrul`s root text is supplemented by Thrangu Rinpoche`s lucid commentary. In the creation stage of tantra, practitioners visualize themselves in the form of buddhas and enlightened beings. This meditation practice prepares the mind for engaging in the later completion stage practice, where one comes face to face with the ultimate nature of mind and reality. The translator, Sarah Harding, has added an excellent introduction distilling the essential features of tantric meditation practices.
"An exceptionally important text that is very beneficial and will resolve all doubts about tantric practice". Thrangu Rinpoche.
"Creation and completion meditation is the cornerstone of tantric Buddhist practice, and draws upon a rich array of techniques and presumptions relating to moral cultivation. This book will be of great interest to both scholars and practitioners of tantric Buddhism." Janet Gyatso.
