In Search of Female Identity in Tibetan Buddhism

Book - 1996
Rate this:
Although concentrating on female identity in Tibetan Buddhism, this cross-cultural study takes a holistic stance, accounting for the historical context of archaic female imagery, in particular that of the , the key female figure embodying the religion's practices. Thus, the volume can serve as both an introduction to the practices of Tibetan Buddhism, and a psychoanalytic tracing of the sexual practices of Tibetan Tantra and the issues of power and authority as they relate to women today.
