Summary

Tibetan Buddhism and feminism, seemingly so different, both deal with the identity of individuals within society, and both stress the importance of direct experience as the core for their theoretical formulations. This book uses the image and practice of the Great Bliss Queen to show the similarities and differences of these two traditions in regard to the core issue of identity.
