Description About the author Contents
 
A Study and Translation of Jey Tsong Khapa's Essence of Eloquence
This is the paperback edition of the first full study, translation, and critical annotation of the Essence of True Eloquence by Tsong Khapa (1357-1419), universally acknowledged as the greatest Tibetan philosopher. Supplementing our view of Buddhism as a contemplative and "mystical" religion, Robert Thurman's translation and introduction present a strain of Indian Buddhist thought emphasizing the need for both critiacl reason and contemplative realisation in the attainment of enlightenment.-
"Robert Thurman's book is divided in two parts. The first part, an extensive introduction, can stand on its own as an insightful and incisive study of Tibetan philosophy, its roots in India, and its relevance to a twentieth-century Western audience. The second part translates Tsong Khapa's text....The quality of both the translation and the introductory essay makes this book a valuable contribution to the study of the central way." Karen Lang, Journal of Asian Studies
