AbstractThe book is a monumental achievement. Drawing on a lifetime's experience with leading figures in Tibetan oral scholarly traditions, J. Hopkins presents the most comprehensive and detailed exploration available of Tibetan tenet systems. No other single volume opens as wide a window onto the interlocking literature of Tibet's philosophical interlocutors over the last five centuries and more,including their expansive articulation of non-Buddhist Indian systems of thought.

The book is also a treasure trove of information and insight. An accurate and accessible translation of one of the most important texts of the "tenets" genre of Tibetan Buddhist literature,it provides the reader with a wealth of information on every aspect of classical Buddhist encyclopedia of Buddhist doctrine that should be on the shelf of every serious student of Tibetan Buddhism,seasoned scholar and beginner alike.

Hopkins presents a detailed and masterful translation and study of one of the most brilliant Tibetan minds' take on the Indian Buddhist tradition. The text examines carefully the whole range of Buddhist philosophy and provides an invaluable source for its study. By drawing from other texts and his own understanding,Hopkins makes available this important text and provides us with a brilliant and invaluable work,a real tour de force,that will be a must for any serious student of Buddhist philosophy.
