The Kilaya Nirvana Tantra and the Vajra Wrath Tantra: Two Texts from the Ancient Tantra Collection

£50.00

Product description

In this work, Cantwell and Mayer have begun the immense task of restoring these Buddhist Tantric texts to their original form through textual criticism. The present scribal state of the texts, the surviving editions, and the various possible methods of restoring them through textual criticism are discussed. Editions of two important texts have been produced, which also consider features of the original compilation and their commentaries. This is intended to be a small contribution towards the eventual restoration of the entire tradition. This edition includes a CD-ROM. Condition: the paper covers and spine show some mild marking and denting. The book's edges show some mild marking and crinkling. The CD is in excellent condition. The interior pages are generally crisp and clean with a good strong binding.
