Me First!: an account of the rise of the Wrathful Buddhas

Me first!: an account of the rise of the Wrathful Buddhas.  James Low (Simply Being, UK, 2022) ISBN: 9780956923981 . Text by James Low, illustrations by Diana Collins.

This is a traditional Tibetan epic tale of the havoc created by the arrogant  entitlement that proclaims, “Me first!”.  When pride turns demonic, the Buddhas manifest many faces of kindness (both peaceful and wrathful) to tidy up the mess.

The text by James Low is based on the Padma bKa’-Thang by Padmasambhava and revealed by the terton, Urgyen gLing-Pa.
