 +The Lamp that Integrates the Practices is a systematic and comprehensive exposition of the most advanced yogas of the Esoteric Community ([[Guhyasamaja]]) [[Tantra]] as espoused by the [[Noble Tradition]] ([[Nagarjuna Tradition]]),​ an influential school of interpretation within the [[Mahayoga]] traditions of Indian [[Buddhist esoterism]]. Equal in authority to [[Nagarjuna]]’s famous [[Five Stages]] ([[Pañcakrama]]),​ [[Aryadeva]]’s work is perhaps the earliest prose example of the “[[Stages of the Mantra Path]]” genre in [[Sanskrit]]. Its studied gradualism exerted immense influence on later [[Indian tradition]] and [[Tibetan tradition]],​ and it is widely cited by masters from all [[four major lineages of Tibetan Buddhism]].
 +
 +This volume presents the Lamp in a tri-lingual format: its Sanskrit original critically-edited from recently-identified manuscripts,​ a critical edition of the eleventh-century [[Tibetan]] translation by [[Rin-chen Bzang-po]] (including notes on readings found in “lost,” alternative translations),​ and a thoroughly-annotated English [[translation]].
 +
 +Includes an introductory study discussing the [[history of the Guhyasamaja]] and its [[wp>​exegetical]] ([[wp>​exegesis]]) traditions, surveying the scriptural and commentarial sources of the [[Noble Tradition]],​ and analyzing in detail the contents of the Lamp. Features a detailed, tri-lingual glossary.
 +
 +About the Author: [[Christian K. Wedemeyer]] is assistant professor of the [[wp>​history of religion]]s at the [[wp>​University of Chicago Divinity School]].
