Vajrayogini: Her Visualization, Rituals, & Forms

Vajrayogini: Her Visualization, Rituals, & Forms (Studies in Indian & Tibetan Buddhism) by Elizabeth English
2002 | ISBN: 086171329X | English | 608 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Vajrayogini is a tantric goddess from the highest class of Buddhist tantras who manifests the ultimate development of wisdom & compassion. Her practice is prevalent today among practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism. This ground-breaking book delves into the origins of Vajrayogini, charting her evolution in India & examining her roots in the Cakrasamvara tantra & in Indian tradition relating to siva.

The focus of this work is the Guhyasamayasadhanamala, a collection of forty-six sadhanas, or practice texts. Written on palm leaves in Sanskrit & preserved since the twelfth century, this diverse collection, composed by various authors, reveals a multitude of forms of the goddess, each of which is described & illustrated here. One of the sadhanas, the Vajravarahi Sadhana by Umapatideva, depicts Vajrayogini at the center of a m&ala of thirty-seven different goddesses, & is here presented in full translation alongside a Sanskrit edition. Elizabeth English provides extensive explanation & annotation of this representative text. Sixteen pages of stunning color plates not only enhance the study but bring the goddess to life.
