This work contains two parts of equal length: a detailed discussion of authenticity, canonicity, vision and revelation, and a pioneering textual and text-critical study within this unique genre.
This major study of one of the most significant tantras of the Old School of Tibetan Buddhism is much more than critical apparatus and detailed text history, although it does include all of that. It requires us to rethink our usual notions about what a Buddhist tradition might be.
