excellent book, well written, concise, informative. in fact every vajrasatva ite should have on on his/her shelf. an excellent reference book full of information you would be hard pressed to find else where.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not exhaustive 11 Aug. 2016
By C. D. Varn - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A good guide but doesn't cover key bodhisattvas as much as one would like and spends a lot of time on visualization practice.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a reprint 12 Mar. 2009
By A reader - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a reprint a portion of the book "Meeting the Buddhas: A Guide to Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, and Tantric Deities." That book contains "A Guide to the Deities of the Tantra," "A Guide to the Buddhas" and "A Guide to the Bodhisattvas" all in one volume, at a comparable price, if you'd prefer that format. The new separate editions don't seem to have been updated, as far as I can tell.

5.0 out of 5 stars About The Different Editions of This Book... 9 May 2012
By Theseus - Published on
Format: Paperback
This important Tony McMahon (Vessantra) book has been released in several different versions.

Windhorse Publications first published this in 1993. It was revised in the 1994 release. In 2008 they released three "new" books which simply divided the original Meeting the Buddhas into three shorter books (A Guide to the Buddhas, the Deities of the Tantra, the Bodhisattvas.)

There are also two hardback copies of Meeting the Buddhas you can find -- both a bit pricey.
