Editorial Reviews

Review

“At last, a comprehensive study of Mipam, the Nyingma Lion, whose magisterial works bridged the scholastic and yogic traditions of Tibet. Beautifully written, Duckworth’s book lucidly surveys Mipam’s Buddhist philosophy and provides translated excerpts from Mipam’s voluminous body of work that illustrate his erudite views. This is an exciting, accessible book we have been waiting for!”—Judith Simmer-Brown, Professor of Religious Studies, Naropa University, author of Dakini’s Warm Breath       

“Like the sun shining in the sky, the writings of our kind protector, Lama Mipam, sparkle with the light of wisdom. I congratulate my student, Prof. Douglas Duckworth, for publishing this important book on the life and works of the great scholar-practitioner, and I believe the book will be of interest, not only to students of Tibetan Buddhism, but to anyone with a sincere interest in discovering the depths of Buddhist insight.”—Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, author of Present Fresh Wakefulness: A Meditation Manual on Nonconceptual Wisdom

“Douglas Duckworth gives historical background to important Buddhist discussions in India and Tibet that concerned Mipam, a survey of the philosophical themes that he addressed and a selection of translations from his impressive array of writings. Though the translations are excerpts from longer works, they are valuable reading for practitioners. As a condensed anthology on Mipam, this book strikes an important balance, explaining the thought of one of Tibet’s great intellectuals while giving readers handpicked gems from Mipam’s forest of wisdom.”—Buddhadharma

About the Author

Jamgon Mipam (1846-1912) was one of the great luminaries of Tibetan Buddhism in modern times. He had a dominant and vitalizing influence on the Nyingma school and beyond. A scholar of outstanding brilliance and versatility, his translated works are eagerly anticipated by English-language readers.

Format: Paperback
This is a tremendous book; I can't recommend it highly enough. Duckworth's writing is very accessible and interesting, and he makes Mipam's special contribution to Tibetan Buddhism very clear. He lays out an in-depth discussion of the major issues among the Buddhist philosophical schools, and how Mipam fits them together in a coherent system that culminates in the Dzogchen view. Just like Mipam, Duckworth is a practitioner as well as a scholar, and his experiential understanding is evident. He discusses Mipam's entire collected works, and includes over thirty excerpted translations that show Mipam's unique way of clarifying emptiness, nonconceptual wisdom, and immanent wisdom. If you want to know about Mipam and develop certainty in your understanding of his thought, read this book.

Format: Paperback
This is not an ordinary book. This gives a really nice overview of Mipam (Mipham) Rinpoche's work and brilliance. One of the greatest practitioner/scholar masters of the last several centuries, Mipam Rinpoche's impact cannot be understated. The presentation here is great - a nice overview of the general ideas and philosophical context, the author then takes the reader deeper into the subtleties in a very lucid manner. A must have.
