Emptiness in the mind-only school of Buddhism by Jeffrey Hopkins( )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 928 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jeffrey Hopkins focuses on how the conflict between appearance and reality is presented in the Mind-Only, or Yogic Practice, School. The Essence of Eloquence is so rich that over the past six centuries numerous Tibetan and Mongolian scholars have been drawn into a dynamic process of both finding and creating consistency in Dzong-ka-ba's often terse and cryptic tract. Hopkins has made extensive use of these commentaries to annotate the translation in such a way that the issues come alive. Included are historical and doctrinal introductions, a critical edition of the text, and a lengthy synopsis to aid the general reader. Specialists and nonspecialists alike will find this book indispensable."--Jacket

"Written in 1963 - just four years after his escape from Tibet and four years after completing his education - Opening the Eye of New Awareness is the Dalai Lama's first religious work. Originally intended for Tibetan lay people, Westerners, and "those who do not have the leisure to study the great texts," this is the Dalai Lama's own summation of Buddhist doctrines and practices as they have been practiced in Tibet for a thousand years. It is a work of consummate scholarship by a twenty-seven-year-old monk, wise beyond his years. A new introduction by Professor Lopez provides insight into the historical and philosophical context of His Holiness' work."--Jacket
