About the Author

GYUM KHENSUR LOBSANG JAMPA was born in Lhasa, Tibet, in 1937. He entered the Mey College of Sera Monastery at the age of ten. Khensur Rinpoche studied in Tibet until 1959 when he fled to India after the Chinese occupation of Tibet. After completing the final Geshe exam, he was awarded the title of Geshe Lharampa, and later, after entering Gyume Tantric College, he was awarded the degree of Ngag-rampa (the highest Tantric degree in the Gelukpa tradition). The Dalai Lama appointed him as the abbot of Gyume, a position which he filled for a term of three years. He currently teaches throughout the US, Canada, and Asia. ARTEMUS B. ENGLE studied Buddhism with the late Sera Mey Khensur Lobsang Tharchin Rinpoche for more than thirty years. Over much of the past decade, he has continued his studies as a student of Gyume Khensur Lobsang Jampa Rinpoche. In 1983, he earned a doctorate in Buddhist Studies from the University of Wisconsin and is currently a fellow with the Tsadra Foundation.

Reviews

"The Guhyasamaja Tantra is one of the most important practices in the Gelukpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, and Lama Tsongkhapa himself has spent tremendous effort in explaining, clarifying, and giving instruction on this practice. Gyume Khensur Lobsang Jampa holds the uninterrupted lineage of this practice coming from Lama Tsongkhapa himself. Making such an explication available to advanced, sincere Western Dharma students is a great gift and opportunity."-Yangsi Rinpoche, president of Maitripa College

"Artemus Engle deserves our great thanks and hearty congratulations for his heroic effort in studying the Guhyasamaja generation-stage practices and in achieving a lucid English translation of this exceptional teaching by the highly respected expert practitioner/scholar, the retired abbot of the Gyume Lower Tantric College in South India, Khensur Lobsang Jampa Rinpoche. This detailed exposition of the sophisticated creative yoga of the advanced tantric monk-practitioners will finally help scholars, who are just beginning to go beyond the sensationalism attached to this field, to undertake the serious exploration of the original texts-the software of the yogis. It will also become an important source for practitioners who aim for a taste of the extraordinary possible attainments, for which these time-tested Indian and Tibetan traditions provide an amazingly well-developed set of key insights and techniques."-Robert A. F. Thurman, Jey Tsong Khapa Professor Emeritus of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies, Columbia University
