Product Details


“A spectacular book that provides access to the avenues and horizons of Tibetan monastic inquiry. Katherine Rogers’s presentation opens the way to approach reasoning into reality.” —Jeffrey Hopkins, author of Tsong-kha-pa’s Final Exposition of Wisdom

“By providing an in-depth analysis of the logic used by Tibetan scholars, Kathy Rogers offers an important tool to all those who are interested in probing the depth of Tibetan Buddhist learning. An excellent and very thorough work that will greatly help one to understand the workings of Buddhist logic and provide a solid basis for studying the more advanced teachings of this wonderful tradition. Highly recommended for the really serious student.” —Georges Dreyfus, author of The Sound of Two Hands Clapping

“This excellent book offers essential insight into the rigorous tradition of logic that is the foundation of the intellectual tradition of the great Geluk monastic universities of Tibet. Correct reasoning is the indispensable tool used to draw forth the penetrating realization of the nature of reality that is the goal of Buddhist practice. Katherine Rogers’s clear and engaging presentation illuminates this important topic.” —Elizabeth Napper, author of Dependent-Arising and Emptiness

“The principles and methods of Buddhist logic can be a box of very useful tools both for our contemporary formal analytical meditations and for improving our thinking about the practice of the Dharma in our everyday lives and relationships with others. As well as dealing rigorously with the technical material, Katherine Rogers gets this wider practical point across clearly at every opportunity. . . . Full of valuable insights for practitioners at every level, and it never loses touch with the inspiring and motivating enterprise of developing a ‘path of reasoning’ to penetrate the very nature of reality and realize the full potential of human consciousness.” —Roy Sutherwood, The Middle Way

“A welcome addition to the library of serious students of debate.” —Mandala

“Make[s] this exceedingly dense and difficult topic comprehensible to a Western audience.” —Buddhadharma

“A groundbreaking work . . . superb exploration of the process of sound thinking.” —Thomas Peter von Bahr, New Age Retailer

“This volume illuminates the goals, techniques, and paths of reasoning used in the tradition of logic by the Ge-luk-pa order of Tibetan Buddhism . . . [a] monumental contribution. . . . Highly recommended.” —E. Findley, Trinity College Choice (American Library Association)
