The fIrSt, "The Development of Buddhism in Tibet" is a brief account of the history of the four major Buddhist schools in Tibet. It includes a description of their doctrines and monastic institutions. These four schools are the Nyingmapa (the Ancient Ones), who are followers of the Old Tantras (those tantras translated into Tibetan before the eleventh century a.d.), the Kagyudpa, Sakyapa, and Gelugpa who are followers of the New Tantras (those tantras which were translated after the eLeventh century a.d.). The account which / have given in this article is the traditional version of the history of Buddhism in Tibet as it appears in Tibetan historical texts. The second article, "The Scope of Tibetan Literature" is a brief outline of the subject. It presents a general schema of Tibetan literature, classifying the works on various subjects - secular and religious. I have included the names of only a few major literary works ase.xamples of the literature falling under each heading. I am grateful to Harold Talbot for editing these articles. My gratitude also goes to the Center for the Study of World Religions and to Michael Baldwin and the other members of the Buddhayana Foundation, U.S.A. for their generous sponsorship, which enabled me to prepare these texts for printing. I am also thankful to Eric Jacobson for editing, proofreading and assembling the glossary and index and to Martha Hamilton for doing the typesetting, artwork and arranging for the texts to be printed.

The first 12 are for the practice of the Path of Accumulation, the next 10 are for the Path of Application, the next 7 are for the Path of Insight and the final 8 are for the Path of Meditation. TRANSMISSIONS In the Dzog-Chen tradition, the teachings are communicated in three ways: 1) Mind Transmission: Direct mind to mind transmission among the Buddhas. 2) Indication Transmission: Transmission by signs among highly realized beings (Vidyadharas). 3) Hearing Transmission: Verbal transmission from master to disciple. TRANQUILLITY MEDITATION (Shamatha, Skt.) Meditation whose purpose is the quieting and progressive focusing of the mind. It is necessary to practice this before attempting Insight Meditation.

TSA WU-MA (rib.) The central energy channel in the human body. To lead the rLung into this central channel is one way of perfection of esoteric practice. Achieving this, one attains a high realization. TULKU (Tib.) Due to the all-pervasive skill and compassion of the Buddha's teachings innumerable "manifestations" of Enlightened Awareness continually occur in myriad forms - as bridges, works of art and in human form. All serve to aid beings in easing their suffering and stimulating their quest for full Enlightenment. In Tibet, Tulku is a title given to rebirths of highly accomplished beings. 80 TCIM-MO (Tib.) HeatYoga. Psychic Heat. One of the Six Yogas taught by the great Naropa and others as a means to generate the Great Bliss, the ultimate goal of Tantrik practice. TWO TRUTHS Buddhiust teachings recognize the necessity of comprehending reality (satya) from two viewpoints - the Absolute and the Relative. These are sometimes known as the Two Truths: 1) Absolute Truth (Paramartha, Skt.) - Reality apprehended from the absolute or ultimate viewpoint, which comprehends the voidness (Shunyata) of all phenomena. 2) Relative Truth (Samvrtisatya, Skt.) - Reality apprehended from the relative viewpoint, which comprehends that all phenomena are dependently co-arisen (Pratityasamupada, Skt.). VAJRA VARAHI (Skt.) Diamond Sow. A sow-headed goddess, especially invoked to subdue ignorance. VAJRADHARA (SkL) DORJE CHANG (Tib.) A Sambhogakaya form of Enlightened Mind_ In the Sarmapa or New Tantras of Tibet, Vajradhara is the most important figure and is the source of the esoteric teachings. V AJRASA TTV A (Skt.)

Immortal, or enlightened goddesses. WISDOM DIVINITY (YESHES-PA, Tib.) This is the actual deity which the meditator invites to come and dissolves into the visualized form of the deity in Tantrik meditative practices. See Visualized Divinity. WISHING-GEM . A gem which fulfills or grants one's wishes. This symbolizes Enlightened Mind which is like a wishingjewel, because it wishes. Y ANA (Skt.) f . Vehicle or Way. A coherent and consistent way 0 prac.l"; .. ; ... t.f.,;;,,. iliSlIll Buddha's teachings. Buddhism has been classified into 4, 6 or 9 Yanas according to different traditions. In the most popular sense, Buddhism is known nowadays in three categories of progressively faster paths of attainment: Hinayana, Mahayana and Tantrayana (or Vajrayana). YANAS OF CAUSE The Mahayana is divided, according to Tibetan tradition, into the Yana of Cause (Hetuyana, Slct.) and Yana of Result (Phalayana, Slct.). The former is associated with the vehicle of perfection (Paramitayana) because the perfections act as stimuli or causes leading to spiritual fulfillment. The latter, the result vehicle, is the body of Tantrik teachings (Mantrayana). Both of these are aspects of the Mahayana, hence their foundation is the cultivation of an Enlightened Mind (Bodhicitta). YOGA (Skt.) Spiritual exercises or practices. YOGA SHASTRAS (Skt.) Literary writings on mysticism. A category of esoteric teachings of Buddhism. ./ 82 INDEX Baron, p.27 MONASTERIES/TEMPLES Nalentra, p. 34 Chabdo, p.39 Chang TaNa, p.28 DenSaThiI, p.27 DrePung, p.41 Deur ChoDe, p. 34 Dodrup Ch'en, p. 23 DoJe-TraglrDo-rJe Brag, p. 23 Druk, p. 29 Drukung, p. 27 DzogpCh'enlrDzogsCh'en, p. 23 Dzong-Sar Tra-Shi Lha-Tse, p. 34 GaDenldGa'-/Dan, p.37-39, 59 dGon-Lung, p. 40 Gung-Thang, p. 27 Gyud Med Tra- Tshang, p. 39 Gyud-Tod Tra-Tshang, p. 39 Institute of Ttbetology, p. 1 7 Karma Lha-Ding, p. 26 Ka- Thog, p. 23 KhorDong, p. 23 Ku-Bum/sKu-a'Bum, p. 39 Kho Yel-Phong, p. 28 Lhurn-Drub- Teng, p. 34 LongBol, p. 29 Min- Trol LinglsMin-Gral G/ing, p. 23 Na-Phur, p. 29 Ngor .
