Abstract:
"Hopkins's latest book is the first of a planned threevolume set of contributions to research in the Cittamàtra (ÒMindOnlyÓ) School of Tibetan Buddhism complementing his previous work on the Màdhyamika (ÒMiddle WayÓ) School. Although drawing on numerous sources both within and outside of the dGe lugs (ÒGelukÓ) tradition both written and oral, Hopkins restricts the content of this first volume to an annotated and detailed translation of the prologue and first chapter of Tsong kha paÕs (ÒDzongkabaÓ) Legs bshad snying po (ÒThe Essence of EloquenceÓ), an exegesis of the hermeneutics of the Cittamàtra School; intra and intersectarian differences and specific philosophical disputes Hopkins reserves for discussion in future volumes."
