A companion to the unique Tibetan Book of the Dead (GB 39), which the late Dr Evans-Wentz also edited, this volume, illustrated with photographs & reproductions of yoga paintings & manuscripts, contains some of the principal meditations used by Hindu & Tibetan philosophers & gurus thru the ages in attaining Right Knowledge & Enlightenment. The editor, whose inquiry & research extended over 15 years in the East, spent much time as a pupil of Hindu sages & Buddhist lamas. Hes included a body of orally transmitted tradition & teachings received at 1st hand. These will be of interest to anthropologists, psychologists & students of comparative religion & practically applied Mahayana Yoga.

Special commentaries precede each carefully rendered text. A preface contrasts the tenets of Buddhism with European concepts of religion, philosophy & science.Yoga, a taproot of Hinduism, Jainism, Zen Buddhism & Taoism, has also influenced the development of Judaism, Islam & Xianity. These seven distinct but related books, arranged in orderly sequence, afford a comprehensive view of the teachings which have shaped the culture of the East, & which now increasingly enrich the Wests appreciation of the depths of the psyche.Evans-Wentz, formerly of Jesus College, Oxford, is also the editor of The Tibetan Book of the Dead (GB 39), The Tibetan Book of the Great Liberation (GB 260) & Tibets Great Yogi, Milarepa (GB 294).

His substantial tetralogy of works on yoga, based on translations from the Tibetan, offers an interpretation from within rarely found in the works of Western scholars. During the early years of this century Evans-Wentz lived in India & in Sikkim, at the invitation at the Maharaja Sidkyong Tulku, where he studied occult doctrines.
