A demanding Masterpiece

The Cental Philosophy of Tibet by Robert A. F. Thurman (Princeton) is by far the most innovative and key texts to Tsong-kha-pa's teachings and life experience as it purports to reveal Tsong-kha-pa's own account of his experience of Enlightenment and his answer to many of the intellectual muddles, hyperintllectualisms, antirationalisms that befuddled and continues to perplex many contemporary monks and Buddhist practitioners. It is a demanding read but well worth the effort.

A Feast -- But Bring Your Alka-SeltzerĀ®

This book is a classic in the field of Indo-Tibetan philosophy. The subject, the Essence of Eloquence, is surely one of the most difficult of all indigenous Tibetan philosophical treatises -- to understand, let alone translate. So for for translating this text we applaud Thurman, and also for his inspired introduction. But we tap our feet apprehensively at some of his polemical connivings, and we wish very much he would re-edit the translation for readability, by working more flexibly and thoroughly with good English sentences. As it stands, there is a distinct redolence about it of "I've been typing all night, the kids are up already, and the tip of my tie is in my coffee cup."

The translation must be judged a great but unfinished work.
