9781559392310: The Moon of Wisdom: Chapter Six of Chandrakirti's Entering the Middle Way with Commentary from the Eighth Karmapa Mikyo Dorje's Kagyu Siddhas

Nagarjuna, in his seminal text, The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way, summarized the vast teachings of the Buddha and used logical reasoning to prove the validity of his words. Entering the Middle Way is Chandrakirti's explanation of Nagarjuna's work. Its sixth chapter, which comprises the majority of the text, has four main sections: an explanation of how in genuine reality phenomena do not truly arise; a refutation of the Mind-Only School's assertion that mind truly exists; a refutation of the true existence of the personal self; and an explanation of the sixteen emptinesses taught by the Buddha in the Transcendent Wisdom Sutras. The Moon of Wisdom is thus a book that explains the Buddha's ultimate teachings, how to gain confidence in them, and how to put them into practice in one's own life to the great benefit of oneself and others.

From the Publisher:

Over twenty-five hundred years ago, thebuddha described the inconceivable, perfectly pure ture nature of reality in his teachings on Transcendent Wisdom (Sanskrit: Prajnaparamita). some five centuries later, the noble protector Nagarjuna, in his seminal ext The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way, summarized these vast teachings of the Buddhas and used logical reasoning to prove the validity of the buddha's words. Enetering the middle Way is the glorious Chandrakirti's explanation of the meaning of Nagarjuna's work. Its sixth chapter, which constitutes the majority of the ext, has four main sections: an exlantion o fhow in genuine reality phenomena do not truly arise; a refuation of the Mind-Only (Sanskrit: Chittamatra) School's assertion that mind truly exists; a refutation of the true existence of the person self; and an explantion of the sixteen types of emptiness taught by the Buddha in the Transcendent Wisdom sturas. In the course of his treatise, composed in succinct verse form, Chantdrakirti clarifies the ultimate meaning of the Buddha's Transcendent Wisdom sutras. The Eight Karmapa, Mikyo Dorje, one of the most erudite and prolific scholars of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, elaborates on the meaning of these verses in a commentary that he proclaims to contain the key to gaining the realization achieved by all the enlightened masters of the past, present and future.

From the Back Cover:

THE MOON OF WISDOM: Chapter Six of Chandrakirti's Entering the Middle Way with Commentary from the Eighth Karmapa by Chandrakirti and Karmapa Mikyo Dorje, trans. by Ari Goldfield, Jules Levinson, Jim and Birgit Scott

This important work, selected by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso as the text for his worldwide teaching tour, presents the 7th-century philosopher Chandrakirti's explanation of Nagarjuna's text The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way, which summarizes the vast teachings of the Buddha and uses logic to prove the validity of his words.

The 8th Karmapa, a renowned meditation master and esteemed scholar, elaborates Chandrakirti's verses in a commentary--from The Chariot of the Dakpo Kayu Siddhas-- that contains the key to gaining the realization achieved by all the enlightened masters. The Moon of Wisdom's extraordinary combination of teachings from Nagarjuna, Chandrakirti and one of the most respected Karmapas forms a uniquely authoritative and comprehensive explanation of the Buddha's ultimate teachings, how to gain confidence in them, and how to put them into practice in one's own life.
