previous review should say "200 years" NOT "20 years"
thank you, and apologies!
This study and translation of one of the more advanced texts on madhyamaka in the nyingma school is a welcome relief amid the overabundance of geluk-oriented material on the subject. Written by arguably the most influential philosopher and master practitioner of the last 20 years of nyingma history, the translated text alone makes this a valuable book. Add to that the highly readable analysis and background information, as well as the translation of another, shorter text by Mipham Rinpoche written from a contrasting point of view and you have a very well-rounded read certain to leave you with some enlightening and decidedly nyingma perspectives. Long overdue!
