"Buddhism was introduced into Tibet via India and China beginning in the 600s. Over time, Tibetan Buddhism developed a sophisticated scholastic philosophy and elaborate and unique forms of tantric practice.
As interest in Tibetan Buddhism in the West has grown, some of these teachings and practices have become known, but are not always understood or used correctly. In this conversation with Andrew Holecek, a well-known authority on Tibetan Buddhism, author and editor Richard Smoley will explore essential themes, such as the benefit and peril of tantra, dream meditation, Bardo, the role of the Guru, and the challenge of integrating Tibetan Buddhism in our western culture."
