About Book:

Gender, Identity and Tibetan Buddhism is a cross-sultural study which creates links between the symbolic representations of gender in the philosophy of Tibetan buddhism and contemporary thinking in relation to identity politics and interubjectivity. it traces some of the important cultural factors in the representations of gender in Tibet's archic images, its monastic institutions, and in the light of Tibetan Buddhism's popularity in the west, June Campbell raises important questions concerning the potential uses and abuses of power, authority and secrecy in the sexual practices of Tibetan Tantra, now that its teachings are being disseminated throughout the world.
