Originally published in 1973. The volume is divided into four sections: The introduction places the position of the Buddhist Tantras within Mahayana Buddhism and recalls their early literary history, especially the Guhyasamahatantra; the section also covers Buddhist Genesis and the Tantric tradition. The foundations of the Buddhist Tantras are discussed and the Tantric presentation of divinity; the preparation of disciples and the meaning of initiation; symbolism of the mandala-palace Tantric ritual and the twilight language. This section explores the Tantric teachings of the inner Zodiac and the fivefold ritual symbolism of passion. The bibliographical research contains an analysis of the Tantric section of the Kanjur exegesis and a selected Western Bibliography of the Buddhist Tantras with comments.

How do contemporary Westerners and Tibetans understand not only what it means to be 'Buddhist', but what it means to be hailed as one from 'the West' or from 'Tibet'? This anthropological study examines the encounter between Western travellers and Tibetan exiles in Bodhanath, on the outskirts of Kathmandu, Nepal and analyses the importance of Buddhism in discussions of political, cultural and religious identity. Based on extensive field research in Nepal, Buddhism Observed questions traditional assumptions about Buddhism and examines the rarely considered phenomenon of Western conversions to a non-Western religion. Scholars of Anthropology, Religion and Cultural Studies will find here a refreshing insight into how to approach 'other' societies, religions and cultures.

Exceptionnelle par sa variété et son ancienneté, la collection des peintures du bouddhisme tibétain du musée national des Arts asiatiques - Guimet, constituée depuis plus de cent ans grâce à des acquisitions régulières, est l'un des ensembles les plus complets du patrimoine lamaïque en Occident. L'auteur de ce catalogue, Gilles Béguin, conservateur en chef, responsable de la section des arts du Népal et du Tibet au musée Guimet de 1971 à 1994, présente ici de façon exhaustive les 416 thang-ka de la collection, y compris ceux déposés dans les musées de régions. Des études iconographiques très détaillées sur les divinités, ainsi que les nombreux index qui viennent en complément, font de cet ouvrage un instrument de référence essentiel.
