Library Journal Review

This collection of out-of-print articles from Crystal Mirror and Gesar Magazine introduces Vajrayana (``Diamond Vehicle'' or Tibetan) Buddhism, especially from the earliest (Nyingma) lineage. The book includes translated portions of some ancient texts concerning accessible practices and a series of articles written by Tulku for his Western students. These articles illustrate the relevance of ancient teaching to contemporary life and articulate Buddhist doctrine, especially regarding ``no-self,'' in terms Westerners can understand. Recommended primarily for academic libraries and large public libraries. Since some of the articles are revised, libraries possessing the originals may still want this collection. (c) Copyright 2010.
