Madhyamaka, or the Middle Way, is accepted by all schools of Tibetan Buddhism as the most profound expression, in philosophical terms, of emptiness, the true nature of phenomena. Emptiness is the basis on which the whole of Mahayana practice is founded, from the mind-training meditations on bodhichitta to the advanced yogas of tantra and dzogchen. The Madhyamaka tradition, inaugurated by Nagarjuna and dominant in India for over a thousand years, remains a vibrant force in Tibetan Buddhism.

The Buddhist masterpiece Distinguishing Phenomena from Their Intrinsic Nature, often referred to by its Sanskrit title, Dharmadharmatavibhanga, is part of a collection known as the Five Maitreya Teachings, a set of philosophical works that have become classics of the Indian Buddhist tradition. Maitreya, the Buddhas regent, is held to have entrusted these profound and vast instructions to the master Asanga in the heavenly realm of Tushita. Outlining the difference between appearance and reality, this work shows that the path to awakening involves leaving behind the inaccurate and limiting beliefs we have about ourselves and the world around us and opening ourselves to the limitless potential of our true nature. By divesting the mind of confusion, the treatise explains, we see things as they actually are. This insight allows for the natural unfolding of compassion and wisdom. This volume includes commentaries by Khenpo Shenga and Ju Mipham, whose discussions illuminate the subtleties of the root text and provide valuable insight into the nature of reality and the process of awakening.

The book focuses on related issues such as what is negated by the doctrine of Emptiness, the nature of ultimate reality and the difference between "extrinsic" and "intrinsic" emptiness. These issues continue to be the subject of lively debate among contemporary exponents of Tibetan Buddhist thought. Karma Phuntso's book aptly undertakes a thematic and selective discussion of these debates and Mipham's qualms about the Gelukpa understanding of Emptiness in a mixture of narrative and analytic styles. For the first time, a major understanding of Emptiness, variant to the Gelukpa interpretation that has become dominant in both Tibet and the West, is revealed.
Open Door to Emptiness: A Discussion of Madhyamaka Logic

This edition contains a newly translated version of the source text. One of the most important concepts in Mahayana Buddhism is the concept of Emptiness. We all experience our world as having internal thoughts and feelings and experiencing the outer world as solid objects. These experiences do in fact appear, but when they are examined closely in four careful analyses of the Middle-way (Madhyamaka) they are found to have no solid, inherent reality. This fact has led the Buddha and many highly realized masters to declare that our reality is like a mirage, a dream, a drop of dew.

To fully awaken requires great generosity, patience, energy, discipline, concentration, and wisdom, but we all have the potential to develop these qualities since we have the seed of buddhahood.
Reflexive Nature of Awareness

Tibetan Madhyamaka Defence

Speech of Delight
Speech of Delight, Mipham's Commentary on Shantarakshita's Ornament of the Middle Way
By: Shantarakshita, Ju Mipham Rinpoche
Our Price: $39.95
Members Price: $35.96

Shantarakshita's Madhyamakalamkara is a condensed presentation of later India "Middle Way" philosophy and is structured around one recurring theme, namely, the impossibility of entities being consistently analyzable as either single individuals (i.e., wholes) or plural comsposites (parts). In contrast to Shantarakshita's encyclopedic and multifaceted treatment of Indian philosophy in his well-known Tattvasamgraha, the tour de force of his Madhyamakalamkara is to see all the seemingly diverse Buddhist and non-Buddhist ontoligies as hinging on failed attempts to solve part-whole problems.
