Vajrayogini: Her Visualization Review

Vajrayogini: Her Visualization, Rituals, and Forms

Visualization, Rituals, and Forms (Studies in Indian and Tibetan Buddhism) [Paperback]


Vajrayogini is a tantric goddess who manifests the ultimate development of wisdom and compassion. Her practice is prevalent today among practitioners of  Tibetan Buddhism.
This ground-breaking book delves into the origins of Vajrayogini, charting her evolution in India and examining her roots in the Cakrasamvara tantra and in Indian tradition relating to Shiva.
The focus of this work is the Guhyasamayasadhanamala, a collection of forty-six sadhanas, or practice texts. (One of the sadhanas, the Vajravarahi Sadhana by Umapatideva, depicts Vajrayogini at the center of a mandala of thirty-seven different goddesses, and is here presented in full translation alongside a Sanskrit edition.)
Elizabeth English provides extensive explanation and annotation of this representative text. Sixteen pages of stunning color plates not only enhance the study but bring the goddess to life.
