This volume provides a translation of one of the most important texts in the history of the Newar Buddhist tradition. As rendered into clear English by one of Nepal's greatest modern scholars, Kamal Prakash Malla, its 10 chapters recount the origin of the Kathmandu Valley as a sacred Buddhist territory, how this holy Himalayan oasis became a center of Mahâyana-Vajrayana tradition arrayed around the great Svayambbu Stūpa. The text also reveals the visits of various buddhas, bodhisattvas, and sage- teachers who became central figures in local history.
