Tantra and Popular Religion in Tibet
Geoffrey Samuel, Hamish Gregor, Elisabeth Stutchbury
International Academy of Indian Culture and Aditya Prakashan, Jan 1, 1994 - Religion - 204 pages
The papers in this collection,with one exception,originated in a session on Tibet and Himalayan Societies held at the Australian Anthropological Society conference at the University of Newcastle,Australia in August 1988.These essays provide a significant series of attempts to explore a side of Tibetan religious experience which is of central importance but which has remained on the sidelines of most work on Tibet.
