Biographies of the Great Siddhas
From farmers and wood-gatherers to royal ministers, scholars, and kings, the great siddhas, bearers of enlightened knowledge, came from widely divergent backgrounds. Yet each found within their way of life the keys to realization. Abhayadatta's account of eighty-four great siddhas offers insights into the Vajrayana, the path that transforms ordinary experiences into opportunities for awakening. These stories revel that the doorway to enlightenment is close at hand, and that the freedom found by the siddhas is as available now as in ages past.
