About this title:

Synopsis: Queens and old crones, Buddhas and goddesses, mothers and wild women. Female deities in Buddhism take many forms to inspire, beguile, rouse and protect us. Enter the magical realm of gently compassionate Kuan Yin from China, meet the elusive golden goddess from India representing Perfect Wisdom, and tangle with the energetic embodiments of freedom, the fearless sky-dancing dakinis of Tibet. Respected Western Buddhist teacher Vessantara invites us to learn more about ourselves as women and men by reflecting on these figures, for within us lie the seeds of love, wisdom and freedom that these figures symbolise in their fullness, qualities we can nurture through contemplating the beauty of these enlightened beings.

About the Author: Vessantara is author of The Breath (2005), The Heart (2006), A Guide to the Buddhas (2008), A Guide to the Bodhisattvas (2008), A Guide to the Deities of the Tantra (2008), and The Vajra and Bell (2003).
