A fascinating analysis of the seventh century ritual manual, the Manjushrimulakalpa. This medieval text is intended to reveal the path into a ritual universe where the power of a Buddha abides.
"Wallis sheds much new light on the transition between sutra and tantra literature of Buddhist India." John Makransky.
"Wallis brings alive the world of the Manjusrimulakalpa is a crucial text for understanding medieval Indian Buddhism, yet, because of its immensity, it has been studied rather sparingly and incompletely - and never before with the particular ritual studies-cum-comparative Indological perspective that Wallis brings to bear." Roger Jackson.
