Synopsis

Synopsis

This book offers an exceptionally clear and accessible presentation of the generation stage practices of deity yoga. Gyatrul Rinpoche explains the state of mind to be established at the beginning of the practice session, the details of the visualization sequences, the three types of offerings, and proper mantra recitation—as well as mudras, tormas, and malas. Practitioners from all lineages of Tibetan Buddhism will find that these teachings enhance their understanding of sadhana practice. Rinpoche's detailed explanations make it possible to practice these meditations as they were intended and as they were practiced in Tibet and ancient China.

It was originally published as Generating the Deity.

"A superb resource and informational manual for students scholars and practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism."—Library Newsletter

"The Generation Stage in Buddhist Tantra is a spiritual practice manual for serious students. It provides step-by-step instruction on how to create complex visualizations within the mind. This manual . . . makes available material that Tibetans call 'whispered teachings'—wisdoms so subtle that they are whispered into the disciple's ear. . . . Gourmet-quality nourishment for the soul."—New Age Retailer

"A well-written book that will be invaluable to anyone practicing this particular form of Tibetan Buddhism."—The Middle Way
