Maha-Vairocana-Abhisambodhi Tantra by Stephen Hodge Maha-Vairocana-Abhisambodhi Tantra, Paperback (November 2015)

The first complete translation into English of this Tibetan text, together with the informative commentary by the 8th century master Buddhaguhya. This text is of seminal importance for the history of Buddhist Tantra, especially as very little has been published concerning the origins of Tantra in India.
