Originally published in 1997, Religions of Tibet in Practice is a landmark work--the first major anthology on the topic ever produced. This new edition--abridged to further facilitate course use--presents a stunning array of works that together offer an unparalleled view of the Tibetan religious landscape over the centuries.

Organized thematically, the twenty-eight chapters are testimony to the vast scope of religious practice in the Tibetan world, past and present. Religions of Tibet in Practice remains a work of great value to scholars, students, and general readers.


Praise for Princeton's previous edition: "Religions of Tibet in Practice is by far the richest sourcebook of Tibetan texts available and will reward both the specialist and the patient general reader."--Roger Jackson, Religious Studies Review

Praise for Princeton's previous edition: "[A] valuable contribution to the study of Tibetan religion and culture."--Amy Lavine, Journal of Religion

Praise for Princeton's previous edition: "The anthology is replete with fascinating, important, material; and--remarkably for a work with so many authors--uniformly well-written. Anyone interested in gaining an overall sense of what constitutes Tibetan religious thought in all its multifarious ramifications could hardly have a more helpful introduction."--David Hicks, Asian Thought and Society

Praise for Princeton's previous edition: "This anthology on Tibetan religions is a first of its kind. . . . [The contributors] are among the best in the growing field. . . . Significant and groundbreaking."--Choice
