What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"It presents a brilliant explanation of the relationship between dependent-arising and emptiness.... He compares Dol-po-pa's and Tsong-kha-pa's views of respectively self-emptiness and other-emptiness. A scholarly and influential book."—Mandala
