Summary
A specialist on Buddhist thought and practice, Powers (Asian societies and histories, Australian National U.) introduces Vajrayana, or Tantric, Buddhism, the dominant system practiced in Tibet, for readers who have little or no background in either Tibet or Buddhism. He begins with the origin of Buddhism in India and discusses the Mahayana branch, major doctrines and practices, and the four orders of Tibetan Buddhism.
