Part One defines the problem sentient beings face with understanding the nature of reality. This predicament results because the innate view causes us to see ourselves and the world around us in a way that is not consistent with the way it actually exists. Because of the innate view, we experience suffering that moves from imperceptible to manifest, while remaining in a kind of sleep-like inner stupor or hypnosis. Part Two contains the step-by-step method by which the innate view is dismantled. We arrive at the correct view through careful, sequential elimination of incorrect views. The arguments are presented in the form of short excerpts and my commentary based on Twenty Emptinesses by Chandrakirti, (600 c. 650), a small but important segment of Chandrakirti s seminal Introduction to the Middle Way, Madhyamakavatara. Part Three places the analysis of emptiness in harmony with the teachings of compassion and spiritual love. We learn how the bodhisattva heroes, enlightened beings on their way to perfect Buddhahood, think and behave. Their understanding of the illusory nature of reality might logically make them stern and unforgiving, but they are quite the opposite. How do they train themselves in love?

Some books are a living challenge to expand our thinking and being. This treasure of surprising twists and turns exercises our ordinary thinking and opens us to a new paradigm. I felt tremendously enriched and excited by this scholarly and yet accessible presentation on emptiness and love by Domo Geshe Rinpoche and recommend this book heartily. You will surely be benefited --Joan Borysenko Ph.D author of Your Soul's Compass and Minding the Body, Mending the Mind

Scientists and other serious inquirers know how essential it is to acquire new perspectives on the nature of their process. This little book by Domo Geshe Rinpoche will take you to new vistas about yourself and your world, and you will laugh along the way. Here you will be introduced to ancient wisdoms that you may have wondered about but never found easy access to. As such, this could be one of the most valuable books you ever read. --James L. Oschman, Ph.D. Author of Energy Medicine: the scientific basis

Mystery of Emptiness and Love is an accessible and profound book that provides a fresh and insightful commentary on the nature of reality. Domo Gehse Rinpoche brings together timeless Buddhist teachings with original perspectives to illuminate understanding of the illusory nature of how we are alive, the problems we face in discerning the nature of reality, and the careful analysis that must be accomplished in order to overcome them and arrive at the correct view of emptiness. Her commentary on the essential teachings of Chandrakirti s Twenty Emptinesses is offered with easy-to-read and concise explanations. This text offers a provocative look at the meaning and power of spiritual love and compassion that is essential to the evolutionary journey of benefit beings. This is a gem of a book for anyone interested in contemplating the nature of reality. --Betty J.
