The book opens fresh ground in Buddhist studies and practical theology by applying phenomenological research methods to empirically
discern transformative aspects of contemplative experience using reports elicited directly from contemporary practitioners.

The work portrays the experiences of performing Kun-mkyen Pad-ma dKar-po’s 16th c. ritual in a practice tradition attributed to
the 12th c. female Indian teacher Siddharājñī.

Preliminary spiritual care and contemplative factor models are presented along with a detailed theoretical process analysis
of positive spiritual development as a method of spiritual care through the contemplative action of the liturgy.
