Language of title: English
Author/Creator: Adelheid Herrmann-Pfandt

Description: A study attempting to ascertain more clearly which texts, particularly tantric texts, were translated into Tibetan in the eighth and ninth centuries. The author compares several source materials including the Lhan kar ma list, Dunhuang texts, Chinese translations of tantric texts, and later Tibetan catalogues. From these comparisons, the author makes some brief remarks on the development of Tantric Buddhism in Tibet in the eighth and ninth centuries. (Ben Deitle 2006-05-03)
