Description About the author Contents
 
The Three Natures and Non-Natures in the Mind-Only School
This is the second volume in Jeffrey Hopkins' valuable series on the Mind-Only School of Buddhism and a focal description of it in Dzong-ka-ba's The Essence of Eloquence. Dzong-ka-ba (1357-1419) is generally regarded as one of the greatest Tibetan philosophers, and his "Mind-Only" discourse on emptiness is considered a landmark in Buddhist philosophy. In Volume I, Emptiness in the Mind-Only School of Buddhism, Hopkins provided a translation of the introduction and the section on the Mind-Only School in The Essence of Eloquence. The present volume places this enigmatic and influential exposition in its historical and philosophical contexts. Reflections on Reality conveys the intellectual vibrancy of the different cultural interpretations of this text and expands the key philosophical issues it addresses.
Together with Hopkins' first volume, this book presents an innovative and engaging discussion of philosophical issues, varying interpretations, and textual controversies that together constitute an essential introduction to the Tibetan Buddhist metaphysical imagination.
