"A crucial contribution to our understanding of the formation of tantric Buddhism in Tibet and an impressive feat of translation by a leading scholar... explores the key sources available to the Tibetan author and how he established himself as a major authority on Cakrasamvara while grounding tantric practice in philosophical study and the realization of emptiness."--Jacob Dalton, University of California, Berkeley
"A timely, painstakingly precise, engagingly readable translation of an important scholastic treatise on Buddhist tantric tradition from early 15th-century Tibet.... worthy of extended reflection and analysis by anyone wanting to understand Tibetan perspectives on Indian Buddhist tantra."--Kurtis Schaeffer, University of Virginia
"Consistent and exemplary... careful... thorough... always thoughtful in providing both specialist and general reader with a consistently useful analysis."--Todd Lewis, College of the Holy Cross
