Description About the author
 
A full commentary Asanga's Mahayana Uttara Tantra
During the last years of his life, Buddha Sakyamuni revealed the deepest of his teachings, in what we call now Third Turning of the Wheel of Dharma . These show the heart nature of every one and everyhting to be the sublime perfection of enlightenment. This unregonised inner essence is known as buddha nature . To discover it completely is to become a Buddha, with all a Buddha's qualities and power to help others. But what ,really and truly is a Buddha? What lies at the heart of the Buddha's techings, the dharma? What is it that illuminates the Buddhist saints of the sangha? These and many other questions are answered in precise and beautiful poetry by Asanga, in his great classic, the Mahayana Uttara Tantra, which has become one of the most important doctrinal texts of Tibetan Buddhism.
This new and refreshingly accessible translation is accompanied by a commentary based on the explanation of the most learned contemporary masters of the Kagyu tradition. It provides an introduction for those new to buddha nature as wellas a major and essential reference work, to which one can return again and again for inspiration and guidance.
Maitreya on Buddha Nature, Asanga, tr. Ken Holmes, 345pp, $30.00.
