Detail: Westerners wanting to know about tantra- particularly the Buddhist tantra of Tibet-have often had to work with speculation and fancy. In the The Dawn of Tantra the readers meets a Tibetan meditation master and a western scholar whose grasp of Buddhist tantra is real and unquestionable. In their collaboration- based on a seminar given in Berkeley, California- Herbert V. Guenther and Chogyam Trungpa offer a balanced view of their subject that avoids the extremes of arid schorlarship and facile psychology. Herbert V. Guenther, Ph.D., is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Far Eastern Studies at the University of Saskatachewan. He is the translator and author of many books and articles on Buddhist thought. Chogyam Trunpa (1939-1987) was a much beloved Tibetan Buddhist meditation master, scholar and artist. Well Known throughout the United States, Canada and Europe, he was the founder and president of Naropa University.
