In all religions, sacred texts and objects have appeared miraculously. Among the most remarkable of these revelatory traditions is the terma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
Termas herald a fresh opportunity for the renewal of spiritual practice. Here Tulku Thondup tells the story of the terma treasure tradition initiated by Padmasambhava - the ninth-century saint who established Buddhism in Tibet.
Hidden Teachings of Tibet is a superb outline of the secret Terma tradition. It is erudite, comprehensive, and full of scholarship and insight, yet at the same time is approachable and offers a good overview of Vajrayana as well as specific information on the Termas.
It is well-presented and illustrated, and is a title you will read more than once. This is a lot of wisdom packed within its 300 pages.
