9780394731759: Treasures on the Tibetan Middle Way: A Newly Revised Edition of Tibetan Buddhism Without Mystification

Originally published in the Netherlands, c1969, under the title, 'Tibetan Buddhism Without Mystification,' by E. J. Brill, Leiden.

While various religious and philosophical systems attempt to satisfy the intellectual and emotional craving for explanations of life's mysteries, Tibetan Buddhism seeks rather to bring about a re-evaluation of this craving itself. Thus traditional Western studies of Buddhism, in seeking to fit the teachings into preconceived rationalist systems or to dismiss them as mystical meaninglessness, have missed or misconstrued the essential message. In this ground-breaking work, the world's foremost Tibetologist, Herbert V. Guenther, presents the Buddhist teaching as a dynamic process that leads us to reconsider our underlying assumptions concerning the nature of goals and their realization, and especially progress along a spiritual path.
