Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Taye (1813-1900) - a pivotal figure in eastern Tibet's nonsectarian movement - was one of the most outstanding writers and teachers of his time.
In Tibetan religious literature, his Treasury of Knowledge in ten volumes stands out as a unique, encyclopedic masterpiece embodying the entire range of Buddhist teachings as it was preserved in Tibet.
This volume - Esoteric Instructions , A Detailed Presentation of the Process of Meditation in Vajrayana - deals with meditation, specifically tantric meditation.
A collection of intimate records of personal teachings by masters that simplify tantric meditations by providing pertinent examples and very personal and helpful hints to disciples based on the master's own experience.
Although originally oral in nature, they have been codified and passed down through specific lineages from teacher to student.
This book - a treasury in itself - will undoubtedly be appreciated both by scholars of comparative studies of the different systems and by practitioners wishing to broaden their knowledge of meditation methods.
