Unbounded Wholeness: Dzogchen, Bon, and the Logic of the Nonconceptual
"Unbounded Wholeness offers an original and compelling study of the Dzogchen contemplative traditions of Bon, the indigenous Tibetan religion. In this well-researched and beautifully written book, Anne Carolyn Klein and Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche chart new terrain, revealing in Bon a dynamic way of spiritual self-cultivation and thought. This is an outstanding contribution to our knowledge of Asian religions and philosophies." --Matthew Kapstein, author of The Tibetan Assimilation of Buddhism: Conversion, Contestation and Memory
"This volume is a major contribution to our understanding of the Tibetan philosophical and religious tradition. The study opens this difficult literature to the Western reader and the translation is lucid and accessible. This is a fine example of the fruits of close collaboration between an eminent Tibetan scholar and an eminent Western Tibetologist." --Jay L. Garfield, co-translator of Ocean of Reasoning: A Great Commentary on Nagarjuna's Mulamadhyamakakarika.
