Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Nairn, a Buddhist in the Tibetan tradition trained by, among others, the Dalai Lama and the Gyalwa Karmapa, has written a very capable guide to the essentials of modern Mahayana Buddhism and its derivative meditational practices. Inevitably influenced by Western ideas, Nairn's text is nevertheless a clearly written, engaging, and respectful primer in both the religious attitudes and the spiritual practices of Buddhists in the Tibetan tradition. This should prove a helpful reminder for practitioners and a ready guide for beginners. Recommended for most collections strong in religious studies (plates not seen).
