Tibetan Buddhist Tantra and Jungian depth psychology represent two of the world’s more
dynamic psycho-spiritual traditions. This comparative study explores their respective
insights, cosmologies, and often striking similarities, with particular emphasis on the
manner in which mythic imagery is employed in both disciplines as a powerful agent
of healing and transformation. The ontological status of Tibetan deities and archetypal
entities is also given careful consideration, especially in relation to the phenomena of
psychic projection and autonomous spiritual dimensions.
