Synopsis

A source book of Tibetan texts on Buddhist epistemology, particularly the Sautrantika tenet system and its use in debate. With oral commentary by Geshe Belden Drakpa, Denma Locho Rinpoche, and Kensur Yeshay Tupden.

The texts translated here address questions that arise from Buddhist interest in the confluence of conceptual thought and direct perception in human experience. A major text in each of these three genres of literature are translated here: Jang gya`s presentation of Sautrantika, a discussion of positive and negative phenomena and how they are known from a Gomang monastery debate manual, and a study by Dendar Larampa on how objects are known and named by direct perception and conceptual thought.

"This book should be fascinating to any serious student of Tibetan thought or of Buddhist philosophy in general...a welcome addition to the field." Jose Cabezon.
