Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Realizing emptiness or grasping the true nature of reality lies at the heart of the Buddhist path. In this book, Gen Lamrimpa offers practical instruction on Madhyamaka, insight meditation aimed at realizing emptiness. Drawing on his theoretical training as well as his extensive meditative experience, he explains how to use Madhyamaka reasoning to experience the way in which all things exist as dependently related events.

Synopsis:

A down to earth approach that introduces students to the most difficult, yet key topic of Tibetan Buddhism. Written with the beginning student in mind, the author gives an inspiring presentation that combines analysis with practical exercises.

Synopsis:

People have pondered the true nature of existence through recorded history. Buddhism's philosophical take on this is known as emptiness - the single most important and unique concept for practitioners to study and understand. How to Realize Emptiness gives an inspiring presentation that is aimed at the beginning student. Gen Lamrimpa's down to earth approach, combined with Alan Wallace's skillful translation, introduces students to this key topic by combining practical exercise with analytical thought, gently guiding them to truly develop a foundational understanding for themselves. How to Realize Emptiness will also be helpful to non-religious readers who are looking for answers to the age-old question of existence.

About the Author
