Editorial Reviews

Review

"The student of The Gateway to Knowledge can begin to comprehend the meaning of the major works on Buddhist philosophy and of the traditional sciences. When you want to extract their meaning you need an 'expert system,' a key. The Gateway to Knowledge is like that key, a magical key—it opens up the treasury of precious gemstones in the expansive collection of Buddhist scriptures.... The extremely gifted and learned Tibetan master, Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche (1846-1912) studied with many great masters from all traditions. Accomplished in all five fields of knowledge, he remains the example of perfect scholarship. His unexcelled deeds in teaching and composing Buddhist treatises are immense."
—Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, author of The Bardo Guidebook and Present Fresh Wakefulness

About the Author

Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche (1846-1912) was a student of Jamgön Kongtrul, Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, and Paltrul Rinpoche; he was blessed by Manjushri, the full accomplished Buddha of wisdom. His work is an exceptional treasure of wisdom, compassion, and scholarship. Mipham Rinpoche became one of the greatest scholars of his time and his collected works fill more than thirty volumes. His chief disciple was Shechen Gyaltsab Pema Namgyal.

Format: Paperback
I've read and studied all the preceding volumes of Gateway to Knowledge, and looked forward to reading the final volume for a number of years; even cornering translator, Erik Pema Kunsang at a retreat some years back to ask about the publication date for the final volume. I pre-ordered it as soon as Amazon made that possible, and now have the 4th volume.

Wondeful! Easy to read and understand. There is a new and additional translator on the translation team for the final volume and this does make a difference. The content touches on The Four Seals of Dharma, The Four Right Discriminations, and Right Discrimination of Ready Speech. This volume can be read alone, or with the base knowledge contained in the three preceding volumes.

Long awaited and highly valuable to read. I recommend it joyfully to any serious student of Buddhist philosophy.
