New copy. A translation of the Great Image, the autobiography of Vairochana, one of the most important figures in Tibetan Buddhist history. Vairochana was renowned as a great translator and yogi-scholar and his life story is important not only from a historical standpoint, but also because it is spiritually inspiring.

The Great Image is the autobiography of Vairochana, as told to a group of his students near the end of his life in the eighth century. The story includes details of Vairochana's sixteen trials, which include such episodes as his escape from attack by wild animals, from am ambush by soldiers and robbers, from imprisonment, and from attempted poisoning. The book also includes a history of how the Buddha's teachings were passed from one Indian sage to the next throughout the centuries, via a lineage that included kings and prostitutes, until they were brought to Tibet by Vairochana.

"The great translator Vairochana, crown ornament of all Indian and Tibetan scholars, who was equal in realization and accomplishment to the second Buddha from Oddiyana, extended the life force of the Buddhist teachings and living beings in Tibet in one lifetime." Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
