Description About the author Contents
 
Jamgon Mipam (1846-1912) is one of the most extraordinary figures in the history of Tibet. Monk, mystic, and brilliant philosopher, he shaped the trajectory of Tibetan Buddhisms Nyingma school. This introduction provides a most concise entre to this great luminary's life and work. The first section gives a general context for understanding this remarkable individual who, though he spent the greater part of his life in solitary retreat, became one of the greatest scholars of his age. Part Two gives an overview of Mipam's interpretation of Buddhism, examining his major themes, and devoting particular attention to his articulation of the Buddhist conception of emptiness. Part Three presents a representative sampling of Mipam's writings.

"At last, a comprehensive study of Mipam, the Nyingma Lion, whose magisterial works bridged the scholastic and yogic traditions of Tibet. Beautifully written, Duckworth's book lucidly surveys Mipam's Buddhist philosophy and provides translated excerpts from Mipam's voluminous body of work that illustrate his erudite views. This is an exciting, accessible book we have been waiting for!" - commentary by Judith Simmer-Brown, Professor of Religious Studies, Naropa University, author of Dakini's Warm Breath.

"Like the sun shining in the sky, the writings of our kind protector, Lama Mipam, sparkle with the light of wisdom. I congratulate my student, Prof. Douglas Duckworth, for publishing this important book on the life and works of the great scholar-practioner and I believe the book will be of interest not only to students of Tibetan Buddhism, but to anyone with a sincere interest in discovering the depths of Buddhist insight." - commentary by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, author of Present Fresh Wakefulness.
