Description

Buddhism in Tibet
With an Account of the Buddhist Systems preceding it in India.
By Emil Schlagintweit, LL.D.

This mid-19th Century work is one of the few public domain descriptions of Tibetan Buddhism we have found. Desipte the sketchy knowledge of Buddhism in Europe at the time, this has a surprising level of detail about the subject, due to the pioneering field work of the authors’ brothers. Some of the information in this book about sacred documents, divination methods, calendrical systems, as well as details of rituals and ritual objects is unique.

Contents:

Chapter I. Sketch of the Life of Sakyamuni, The Founder of Buddhism
Chapter II. Gradual Rise and Present Area of the Buddhist Religion
Chapter III. The Religious System of Sakyamuni
Chapter IV. The Hinayana System
Chapter V. The Mahayana System
Chapter VI. The System of Mysticism
Chapter VII. Historical Account of the Introduction of Buddhism into Tibet
