Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this major work, Jeffrey Hopkins, on e of the world's foremost scholar-practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism, offers a clear exposition of the Prasangika-Madhyamaka view of emptiness as presented in the Ge-luk-ba tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. In bringing this remarkable and complex philosophy to life, he describes the meditational practices by which emptiness can be realized and shows throughout that, far from being merely abstract, these teachings can be vivid and utterly practical. Presented in six parts, this book is indispensable for those wishing to delve deeply into Buddhist thought.

Synopsis:

Emptiness is the key teaching of the Buddha, and this book is the most comprehensive and authoritative work on this subject. It also covers the important topics of meditation, dependent arising, the four noble truths, Buddhist logic and tenets, and non-Buddhist schools of philosophy.

Synopsis:

Comprehensive and authoritative title on the key teaching of the Buddha.
