This work offers a detailed presentation of the generation stage practice of tantric deity yoga. These are step-by-step teachings on the genereation stage practices of deity yoga as they were practiced in Tibet. It is an excellent resource for all tantric practitioners.
Quoting the author:
"As the result of this practice, one gains the ability to take intentional rebirth in samsaric realms as a manifestation being of enlightened awareness to tame sentient beings. One gains the ability to determine where and from whom one will be born, so as to perform miraculous deeds for the welfare of others. Shakyamuni Buddha is a perfect example of one who achieved this result. He lived a life marked by the twelve miraculous deeds. This is the kind of result that comes by doing the practice and performing the stages of purification."
