Product Description

Review

"Padmakara has again succeeded in presenting a difficult original text in an accessible and accurate translation. The translators benefited from the guidance of Khanchen Pema Sherab, one of the most renowned living experts in the tradition of Jamgön Mipham. A forty-seven-page introduction helps orient the reader through discussions of the Svantrika-Prasangika distinction, the role and precise nature of the Yogachara aspect of Shantarakshita's system, and the text's relationship to the logical and epistemological tradition of Dharmakirti."— Buddhadharma

About the Author

Shantarakshita, an eighth-century Indian prince, became abbot of the great Indian monastic university of Nalanda, was expert in philosophical disputation, and was universally admired for his intelligence and learning. He was invited by the king of Tibet, Trisongdetsen, to come and spread the Buddhist teachings in Tibet. He established the first monastery in Tibet, ordained the first monks, and inaugurated the tradition of translation of Indian texts.

Essential companion for the study of Buddhist philosophy Sept. 23 2007
By Jayanti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book for anyone interested in studying the deeper aspects of Buddhist philosophy, of which Madhyamika is the essence. It is very complementary to Introduction to the Middle Way: Chandrakirti's Madhyamakavatara with Commentary by Jamgön Mipham. The Padmakara Translation Group makes this highly detailed, traditional text very readable. Highly recommended.
