Khenpo Tsultrim Gyatso's explanations make this classic text accessible. Using clear logics and examples applicable to modern life, the author shows why every sort of belief in solidity just can't hold up. He also shows why this does not mean dwelling in nihilism or blank nothingness. Various contemplations on emptiness effectively challenge the reader to undertake a penetrating look at reality which undercuts closely held preconceptions such as the belief in a self not only intellectually but in a fundamental way that changes one's operational approach to life! The author also includes commentary on the great Tibetan yogi Milarepa's direct realization of emptiness and genuine reality for a potent mix with the examinations of Nagarjuna. Where I previously avoided study of this material (I thought it too hard to make sense of alone) I find myself returning again and again to its examination of all things we ordinarily take as real. (Also a superb translation into English by a practitioner/translator.) Highest recommendation!
