Sources of Controversy in India and Tibet
John J. Makransky - Author

Provides many new translations of original texts formative of Mahayana concepts of Enlightenment and resolves the 1200-year-old controversy between Indian and Tibetan views of the meaning of buddhahood.

To enter the Mahayana Buddhist path to enlightenment is to seek both to become free from our dualistic, deluded world and to remain actively engaged in that world until all others are free. How are these two apparently c...(Read More)

Dharmakirti's Philosophy and Its Tibetan Interpretations
Georges B. J. Dreyfus - Author

Examines the central ideas of Dharmakirti, one of the most important Indian Buddhist philosophers and their reception by Tibetan thinkers.

On Being Buddha
On Being Buddha (September 1994)
The Classical Doctrine of Buddhahood
Paul J. Griffiths - Author

The book's analysis is based almost entirely upon original sources in their original languages. All extracts discussed are translated into English and the book is accessible to nonspecialists, while still treating material that has not been much discussed by western scholars.

"The book raises fundamental issues concerning not only Buddhist ways of conceptualizing divinity but human ways in general of doing so. It provides remarkable new in...(Read More)

Path to the Middle: Oral Madhyamika Philosophy in Tibet (September 1994)
The Spoken Scholarship of Kensur Yeshey Tupden

Wholeness Lost and Wholeness Regained
Wholeness Lost and Wholeness Regained (August 1994)
Forgotten Tales of Individuation from Ancient Tibet
Herbert V. Guenther - Author

This book deals in narrative form with the theme of recovering lost wholeness--with the perennial question of beginnings and what role a human being must play in order to find meaning in his or her life.

"Guenther is, in my opinion, one of the most exciting, most thought-provoking, and most learned interpreters of Buddhist philosophy and psychology in the world. I like the way he draws on the experiential vocabul...(Read More)

A Study of Indo-Tibetan Scholasticism
Jose Ignacio Cabezon - Author

Taking language as its general theme, this book explores how the tradition of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist philosophical speculation exemplifies the character of scholasticism.

Scholasticism, as an abstract and general category, is developed as a valuable theoretical tool for understanding a variety of intellectual movements in the history of philosophy of religion. The book investigates the Buddhist Scholastic theory and use of script...(Read More)
Ocean of Eloquence
Ocean of Eloquence (September 1993)
Tsong kha pa's Commentary on the Yogacara Doctrine of Mind
Gareth Sparham - Translator

This book is of particular interest because it shows the presence of the Yogacara (Mind Only) school in Tibet. It is well known that the Madhyamaka school flourished in Tibet, but less well known that Yogacara doctrines were also studied and practiced. The former school stresses the inexpressible ultimate; the latter, the natural luminosity of mind. This is probably the best introduction to the distinctive eight consciousness systems of Yogacara....(Read More)
Buddhism After Patriarchy
Buddhism After Patriarchy (December 1992)
A Feminist History, Analysis, and Reconstruction of Buddhism
Rita M. Gross - Author

This book surveys both the part women have played in Buddhism historically and what Buddhism might become in its post-patriarchal future. The author completes the Buddhist historical record by discussing women, usually absent from histories of Buddhism, and she provides the first feminist analysis of the major concepts found in Buddhist religion. Gross demonstrates that the core teachings of Buddhism promote gender equity rather than male dominanc...(Read More)
