MS. Tibet. b. 24.10 (R)

Younghusband Expedition Collection

A exegetical treatise on the tantric path and practice


NOTE: This record has yet to be fully checked.

The text is a very articulate exegesis of tantric practices, closely related to bKa' rgyud pa tradition in its content. It is very scholarly and well laid out but it seems to be incomplete.
