Tay_ (1813-99) produced a 10-volume encyclopedia describing the entire range of Buddhist teachings as they were preserved in Tibet, called Shes byakun khyab, or the Encompassment of All Knowledge. The fourth chapter of the sixth book presents the complete system of the indestructible way, vajrayana, of secret mantra. It sets out the essential points of the four sets of tantra, the classification of practices, the initiations that provide entry, the vows and commitments, the two phases of practice, the forms of conduct, and the standard and special attainments. Guarisco and McLeod are part of the Tibetan translation committee for the entire 10 volume project. Annotation å©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
