Description About the author
 
Shantarakshita, also known as Khenpo Bodhisattva, was the abbot of India's Buddhist Nalanda University in the eighth century, where he united the Madhyamika and Yogachara schools of thought. He went to Tibet at the invitation of King Trisong Detsen, founded the temple of Samye, and established the first monastic tradition. After a time, his teachings were all but lost for many generations. In the nineteenth century Ju Mipham, at the request of his teacher, Jamyang Kyentse Wangpo, wrote the commentary for the Ornament of the Middle Way.

Thrangu Rinpoche notes that this teaching proves through logic why all the appearances we see are mind, and why the essence of mind is naturally empty. This teaching helps generate deep certainty that can benefit those who meditate on Mahamudra and Dzogchen and when receiving the oral instructions of pointing out the nature of the mind. Rinpoche received the transmission for this teaching from a student of Mipham Rinpoche himself. Thus this teaching comes to the present day via a short and direct lineage.

Translated by David Karma Choephel. Thirteen talks on seven DVDs.
