The six hundred years of Indian esoteric Buddhism that concluded the 1,700-year background of Indian Buddhism can be stated to were the historical past of the advance of the mandala. (The Kalacakratantra built-in previous mandala theories right into a unmarried method and confirmed a enormous process unparalleled within the background of esoteric Buddhism. It was once hence the end result of the advance of Indian Buddhism over a interval of 1,700 years.) The research is on the micro point and contains quite a few illustrations and charts. specific recognition is paid to right names, mudras, and mantras which have been neglected by way of students in philosophy and doctrine, and the writer tackles matters that can't be defined completely from a historic perspective, comparable to geometric styles, the association of deities, the colours, and their which means in Buddhist doctrine.
