Beginning with a brief account of Saraha's life from what little is known of it, the book surveys his major work, his trilogy of songs: the People, King and Queen Doha. The three most important aspects of his evocative teaching: wholeness, body and complexity, are discussed at length, since these ideas underline Saraha's songs. The scarcity of indigenous Indian source material necessitates constant reference to the rich Tibetan tradition, in particular the nDzogs-chen/sNying-thig teaching.
