About the Author
Ken Holmes studied in Dharamsala before joining Samye Ling in Scotland, the first Tibetan monastery in the West, in 1970. There, he and his wife Katia have devoted the past forty years to researching, translating, publishing, and teaching the practice and study texts of Tibetan Buddhism. As the center's Director of Studies, Ken spends much of the year teaching at Samye Ling's branches in Europe and Africa. David P. Jackson has studied the writings of Sakya Pa ita for some years, publishing in 1987 the third chapter of another of Sapa?'s major works, the Entrance Gate for the Wise. He also investigated the recent history of the Sakya school, publishing a biography of the twentieth-century Sakyapa mystic Dezhung Rinpoche (1906-87) entitled A Saint in Seattle. Ulrike Roesler received her PhD in Indian Studies from the University of Mu]nster (Germany) with a thesis on the notion of "light" in the Vedas. For more than a decade she has been teaching Indian and Tibetan Studies as well as Buddhist Studies at the universities of Marburg, Freiburg, and Oxford. Her research interests include Indo-Tibetan Buddhism, the history of the Tibetan Kadam school, and Tibetan biographical and narrative literature. With Linda Covill and Sarah Shaw, she coedited Lives Lived, Lives Imagined: Biography in the Buddhist Traditions. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

and I love to suffer so reading is knowledgeReviewed in Canada on 2 February 2017
Wow what a big book...however very informative ...and I love to suffer so reading is knowledge...a must for Buddhist enthusiast
I especially loved the third text "Clarifying the Sage's Intent" by Sakya ...Reviewed in the United States on 25 April 2017
Really a must-read for everybody new to Buddhism and also for advanced practitioners. Since I am a Sakya follower, I especially loved the third text "Clarifying the Sage's Intent" by Sakya Pandita. The very foundations are clarified from the stage of someone entering the path up to full enlightenment. You must read this in order to get a real grasp of Tibetan Buddhism.
