I was born in 1960 in Germany and grew up in a scientific home. From 1980 onwards I studied at the University of Göttingen. My contact there has never been completely broken off and still exists today. In addition to social sciences and psychology, I was particularly interested in old languages. These include: Latin, Ancient Greek, Ancient Hebrew, Old-Syriac, Sanskrit and Ancient-Tibetan. In the university context, old languages are learned analytically. It also deals with the grammatical characteristics of the individual languages, text analysis and the classification of the texts in their overall context. In addition to grammar, methods of textual and literary criticism are also applied.
My motivation to do this translation comes from my many years of practice and experience in Tibetan Buddhism as a student of qualified teachers. Since I have the necessary conditions, I want to contribute to the preservation and understanding of the very old texts and thus make it easier for others to follow. The basis is and remains the connection to a qualified teacher who guides you step by step through the text and the meaning. Surplus from the sale is meant to benefit the work of my teacher.

The text is dates back to the 11th century. It is from the indian pandit Gayadhara and the tibetan translator Drokmi. This text contains meditation practices from Tibetan Buddhism. Tibetan Buddhism uses linguistic and ritual symbols that are not accessible without instruction. Texts and instructions cannot therefore be understood without appropriate instruction. Tantric texts like these require years of engagement with Buddhist content. Buddhist teachings are divided into the General Paths and the Higher Paths on the Vajrayana Path. For tantric texts like this one should already have a deep knowledge of Tibetan Buddhism. They presuppose the teachings from the general paths. In addition, one should be familiar with Deity Yoga and have received at least one initiation into the Supreme Yogatantra from a qualified teacher. You should also have contact persons as well as a qualified teacher to whom you can ask questions. These can be found in Tibetan centers of all schools.
