Description
 
With oral commentary by Geshe Belden Drakba, Denma Locho Rinbochay and Kensur Yeshay Tupten.
The texts translated here address questions that arise from Buddhist interest in the confluence of conceptual thought and direct perception in human experience. For over six hundred years, study of these issues in Tibet has focused on elaborations of a philosophical perspective known as Sautrantika. Several years in the Tibetan monastic curriculum are devoted to study of the Sautrantika tenet system, for it is here that thebais for Madhyamika epistemology is found.
Three genres of literature are foundational in this regard: presentations of the Sautrantika tenet system as a whole, syllogistic debate texts on problematic topics in the system, and expository treatments of individual issues such as how conceptual discrimination affects or is affected by direct perception.
A major text in each of these three categories is here translated for the first time: Jang-gya's presentation of Sautrantika, a discussion of positive and negative phenomena and how they are known from a Gomang monastery debate manual, and a study by Den-dar-hla-ram-ba on how objects are known and named by direct perception and conceptual thought. Each work is introduced and annotated by the translator, and generously supplemented by commentary from leadingcontemporary Tibetan scholar-practitioner.
Knowing, Naming and Negation has been approved for inclusion in the Translation in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism series by the Snow Lion Editorial Board of Advisors.
