About Book:

The Hevajrantra, the well known Anuttarayogatantra, about unsurpassed Yoga, is a direct successor of the Tattvasamgraha a yogatantra. It was translated from Sanskrit into Chinese in the 11th century. The Chinese translators offer a text which remains true to its contents, but which is at the same time acceptable to the Chinese milieu of the 11th century. This diplomatic effort explains many discrepancies, which were no problem to the initiate.
