About the Author

Yael Bentor, professor emerita at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, is a scholar of Tibetan Tantric Buddhism. Her research focuses on the crystallization of tantric traditions among the Geluk and Sakya schools around the fifteenth century in Tibet. Currently she is working on the different choices made by Tsongkhapa and his disciples vis-a-vis those of Ngorchen and Redawa in their efforts to create their respective comprehensive systems. She lives in Jerusalem, Israel.


The eloquent and very clear explanations of the Guhyasamaja Sadhana by the famous teacher of the Fifth Dalai Lama, Pachen Losang Choekyi Gyaltsen, are a fine example of Geluk hermeneutics that skillfully combines a comprehensive knowledge of all relevant canonical sources with well-reasoned critical analysis. With their well-annotated translation of this fine piece of Tibetan scholarship, Yael Bentor and Penpa Dorjee have rendered an invaluable service to scholars and practitioners alike. It can be recommended even to newcomers to the field of tantric studies, given its detailed but straightforward introduction to the complex and fascinating system of generation- stage practice. The introduction also contains a range of interesting new information on the Gelukpa's understanding of Tantra, such as Je Tsongkhapa's statements to the effect that consorts can also be male or that female practitioners are able to attain complete awakening in their female bodies.--Prof. Klaus-Dieter Mathes, University of Vienna
