I am very much interested in Amoghavajra. Does anybody have this thesis:
Orlando, Raffaello: A Study of the Chinese Documents Concerning the Life of the Tantric Buddhist Patriarch Amoghavajra Princeton, 1981

You might also be interested in the works of Charles Orzech, whho has written extensively about Amoghavajra.
