Language of title: English
Author/Creator: Matthew Kapstein

Description: The article raises questions about the sources of The Limitless Ocean Cycle. Normally attributed to Karmapa Rangjung Dorjé (karma pa rang byung rdo rje, 1284-1339), the article suggests that syncretistic elements in the text might lead to different understandings of authorship.
