New paperback edition. This study presents the thought of a controversial Tibetan Buddhist thinker, the Sakya yogi-scholar Shakya Chokden, on the Yogacara (Mind Only) and Madhyamaka philosophical systems.

This landmark book discusses the thought of Shakya Chokden (1428-1507) on the two major systems of Mahayana Buddhism. Influential and controversial in his own day, Shakya Chokden's philosophical views fell out of favour over time and his writings were eventually repressed, becoming available again only in the 1970s. Yet, his startling interpretations of the core areas of Buddhist thought remain valuable and well worth consideration. Komarovski has used the 24 volumes of Shakya Chokden's collected works to provide a systematic presentation of a central aspect of his thought: a reconciliation of Yogacara and Madhyamaka. Providing a detailed analysis of the two system's mutual refutations of each other, Shakya Chokden argues for their fundamental compatability and shared vision.

In analyzing Shakya Chokden's ideas, Komarovski explores some of the most important issues of both traditional and modern Buddhist scholarship, including contested approaches to the nature of reality, the relationship between philosophy and contemplative practice, intersectarian Buddhist polemics, and the nature of consciousness and mental processes.
