TIBETAN YOGA
AND SECRET DOCTRINES
Second Edition
Seven Books of Wisdom of the Great PathArranged and edited by W. Y. Evans-Wentz
Seven authentic Tibetan yoga texts, almost unknown to the occidentalworld until their first publication in English in 1935, are now availablein this Galaxy Book edition. A companion to the unique
Tibetan Book of the Dead 
(GB 39), which the late Dr. Evans-Wentz also edited, thisvolume, illustrated with photographs and reproductions of 
yoga
paintingsand manuscripts, contains some of the principal meditations used byillustrious Hindu and Tibetan
gurus
and philosophers through the agesin attaining Right Knowledge and Enlightenment. The editor, whoseinquiry and research extended through more .than fifteen years in theOrient, spent much time as a pupil of Hindu sages and Buddhist lamas.He has included a body of orally transmitted tradition and teachingsreceived at first hand. These will be of particular interest to anthropologists and psychologists, and to students of comparative religion andpractically applied
Mahayana Yoga.
Special commentaries precede eachcarefully rendered text, and a comprehensive preface contrasts the tenetsof Buddhism with European concepts of religion, philosophy, and science.
Yoga,
the tap root of Hinduism, Jainism, Zen Buddhism, and Taoism,has also influenced the development of Judaism, Islam and Christianity.These seven distinct but intimately related books, arranged in orderlysequence, afford a comprehensive view of the spiritual teachings whichhave shaped the culture of the Orient, and which are now increasinglyenriching the West's appreciation of the depths of the human psyche.The late W. Y. Evans-Wentz, formerly of Jesus College, Oxford, isalso the editor of 
The Tibetan Book of the Dead (GB 39), The Tibetan Book of the Great Liberation
(GB 260), and
Tibet's Great Yogi, Milarepa
(GB 294). His substantial tetralogy of works on
yoga,
basedon translations from the Tibetan, offers an "interpretation from within"rarely found in the works of Western scholars. During the early yearsof this century Dr. Evans-Wentz lived in India and in Sikkim, at theinvitation
at 
the Maharaja Sidkyong Tulku, where he studied occultdoctrines intensively.
