“Anyone eager to understand the currents and interpretation that flowed through Tibetan Buddhist literary culture and contemplative practice will be delighted by this excursion into the works of one of the more colorful and daring among Tibet’s intellectual yogins.”—Jules B. Levinson, Ph.D.

“This book is lovingly translated and annotated. Jeffrey Hopkins likes nothing better than this sort of challenge of explication and here he once again comes up trumps.”—The Middle Way

“This short book contains two crucial texts on the Jonangpa School’s controversial doctrine of ‘other-emptiness’ written by the Tibetan scholar Taranatha. . . J. Hopkins, the translator, is one of today’s most insightful and prolific scholars of Tibet. . . . These texts provide a clear, concise, and approachable source for analysis of the central doctrine of a school that was, until recently, anathematized by the Tibetan Gelukpa establishment. Students and scholars of Tibetan thought will find the work a welcome addition.”—Religious Studies Review
