The Creative Vision-addresses itself to an individual’s creative vision of himself and his environing world. Its subtitle, “The Symbolic Re-Creation of the World,” paraphrases the Tibetan term bskyed-nm (bskyed-pa’i nm-pa), rendering the Sanskrit terms utpattikrama and utpanrmkrama, both of which may be translated, more or less literally and hence rather inadequately, as developing phase or phases. The first Sanskrit term emphasizes the process and the second emphasizes its result or product.
