The Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism: Its Fundamentals and History
Wisdom Publications, Sep 1, 2002 - Biography & Autobiography - 1584 pages
Two treatises, Fundamentals of the Nyingma School and the History of the Nyingma School, are among the most widely read of all His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche's works. Composed during the years immediately following his arrival in India as a refugee, these treatises were intended to preserve the precise structure of the Nyingma philosophical view within its own historical and cultural context. "The Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism, " the first English translation of these treatises, constitutes the most complete work of its type in the West. Beautifully presented, this single-volume edition features illustrations in black and white and in color, plus maps, bibliographic information, and useful annotations. The book includes chronologies and glossaries that elucidate Buddhist doctrine, and provides fascinating insights into the Buddhist history of Tibet.
