Tsong-kha-pa’s Final Exposition of Wisdom by Jeffrey Hopkins. 384 pages, special sale price: $23.96. |
Leading scholar of Tibetan Buddhism Jeffrey Hopkins elucidates Tsong-kha-pa’s view of emptiness, the linchpin of Buddhist philosophy. Drawing upon two of Tsong-kha-pa’s revered works—The Medium-Length Exposition of the Stages of the Path and his commentary to Chandrakirti’s Supplement to Nagarjuna’s Treatise on the Middle—Hopkins contrasts Tsong-kha-pa’s views with those of Dol-bo-ba Shay-rab Gyel-tsen, thereby bringing to light the intricate issues at stake in their systematic presentations on the nature of reality.
