9783895002632: Three-Vow Theories in Tibetan Buddhism: A Comparative Study of Major Traditions from the Twelfth through Nineteenth Centuries (Contributions to Tibetan Studies)

English description: Since the 12th century, a central feature of Buddhism in Tibet was its harmonizing of tantric practice with the moral codes of monastic discipline and Bodhisattva altruism. All masters maintained the vajrayana or tantric path to be superior to the two "lower" codes, but they described this superiority differently. In the present study, Jan-Ulrich Sobisch explores for the first time in detail the three main strategies maintained by the oldest Tibetan schools for explaining the relations of the three codes. German description: Ein Kernpunkt des tibetischen Buddhismus ist seine Harmonisierung tantrischer Praxis mit dem Moralkodex klosterlicher Disziplin und dem Altruismus der Bodhisattvas. Alle Gelehrten vertraten die Ansicht, dass Vajrayana bzw. der tantrische Pfad den Regeln der beiden "niederen" Fahrzeuge uberlegen sei, sie beschrieben diese Uberlegenheit jedoch unterschiedlich. In der vorliegenden Studie werden von Jan-Ulrich Sobisch zum ersten Mal die drei hauptsachlichen Strategien im Detail untersucht, die von den altesten tibetischen Schulen vertreten werden, um das Verhaltnis der drei Kodizes zueinander zu erlautern.
