A marvelously lucid work on... this little understood tradition of Buddhist yoga.”—Yoga World

[A] superb outline of the secret Terma tradition... [It is] erudite, comprehensive, and full of scholarship and insight, yet at the same time is approachable and offers a good overview of Vajrayana as well as specific information on the Termas. It is well-presented and illustrated, and is a title you will read more than once. This is a lot of wisdom packed within its 300 pages...”—Media Resources

The tradition of terma should be of more than passing interest to Western students of the Tibetan Buddhist traditions: a great many of us practice at least some such teachings, and sometimes our practice is entirely based upon them. Despite the proliferation of teachings derived from termas, however, there has been an almost total lack of information concerning the genre of terma itself. This book helps to fill that void.”—Professor Matthew Kapstein, translator of The Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism
