Roerich begins with a lengthy introduction, followed by chapters on the Buddhas, Tutelary Deities, Bodhisattvas, Maitreya, Avalokitecvara, Manjucri, Female Deities, Padmasambhava, and Rgyal-ba Tson-kha-pa. A list of paintings discussed (37 in all) precedes the bibliography and index. An exceptionally informative, and important reference work.
