Product Details


“Karl Brunnhölzl has done an excellent job of researching and translating this text and providing further material for reflection on the text’s key topics. This book will serve as a great resource for those who wish to explore the teachings on buddha nature.”—Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, author of Mind Beyond Death and Wild Awakening

In Praise of Dharmadhatu is a wonderful book that bridges the apparent divide between the key Mahayana teachings of emptiness and buddha nature using the words of Nagarjuna and the profound explanations of Rangjung Dorje, the Third Karmapa. Nagarjuna’s text and Rangjung Dorje’s commentary are beautifully translated and annotated by Karl Brunnhölzl, who also provides extensive background material on Nagarjuna and his writings, the Third Karmapa and his writings, and the main topics covered in the texts. Brunnhölzl’s presentation is both scholarly and experiential, with flashes of humor that leaven the mix.”—Andy Karr, author Contemplating Reality

“Dr. Brunnhölzl’s In Praise of the Dharmadhatu is an important work. His translations of Nagarjuna’s text and Karmapa Rangjung Dorje’s commentary are both clear and elegant, and his introduction is masterful. Joining the understandings of buddha nature and emptiness, it is a fitting complement to his Center of the Sunlit Sky. Scholars will encounter Nagarjuna’s broader range of exposition. Students of vajrayana Buddhism will gain a greater appreciation of the view in which they practice. Highly recommended.”—Scott Wellenbach, codirector of the Nitartha Institute
