Editorial Reviews

Review

"A fascinating and brilliantly readable exposition of the re-emergence in India of Candrakrti's view of ultimate truth and of the controversies involved in its reception in Tibet before it became the dominant view." (Jeffrey Hopkins)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great historical survey that cuts through the now outdated Secular and Sectarian views of when and how Chandrakirti influenced Tibet, and Prasangika specifically. More than just history, there are many examples within the book of how His words have been interpreted throughout the various Schools of Tibetan Mahayana.
Overall quality is as expected from Wisdom though, the font is quite small. Maybe Wisdom is trying to save paper.
Not just for the academic or historic reader. There is much to learn in this work. May not be for the completely Esoteric minded though. Retail price is a bit high for those that are not
very interested in this subject.

A history of Madhyamaka in Tibet and its roots in India. Though it is not exhaustive or extensive as such, it will definitely fill you in on the major players in this period of historic transition and give you a more broad understanding of the forces in play during the period of the second spreading of Buddhism in Tibet. This is not for the casual reader of Buddhism but more for those with an academically minded approach to the subject.

Nice historiography and philology here. Not as helpful for madhyamaka studies, but interesting.
