The study of written sources in the languages of India,
Central Asia and Far East has the strong and profound
tradition in Italy. The school founded by Giuseppe Tucci is
successfully maintained by his pupils and followers. The
book considered here testifies to the fact convincingly. This
book presents the starting point of a big project aimed at
the study of the Kālacakra school. It was set in I 99 I under
the guidance of Prof. Raniero Gnoli. Two forthcoming volumes
will contain commentaries on “Sekoddeśa”: “Critical
Edition of the Sanskrit Texts” (part 1) and “Critical Edition
of the Tibetan Texts” (part 2). The translation of the
Sanskrit text reconstructed by R. Gnoli, along with that of
three commentaries will be included in the third volume
(see p. 128)...
