Ethics of Tibet: Boddhisattva Section of Tsong-Kha-Pa's Lam Rin Chin Mo

Alex Wayman (Translator)
Synopsis One of the great contributionsof Tebetan Buddhism to the Buddhist tradition as a whole, and one of the things taht distinguishes it from the Mahayana traditions that developed via China, has been the clear and systematic articulation of a doctrine of compassion. this text is perhaps the paradigmatic expression of taht and as such is vitally important. it will advance Western assess to an understanding of Tibetan Buddhism considerably. One of the leading Tibetan scholars in the world has translated this work by the great Tsong-kha-pa, the titular head of the Ge-lug-pa Sect and perhaps the Tibetan equivalent of the great nagarjuna. this first complete English translation also reveals the encyclopeadic mind of Tsong-kha-pa, whose copious references to the sutras are a gold mine. He, more than anyone else, shaped the development of Tibetan Buddhism as we know it today. This book is very interesting and easy to read, because it is a systematic, stpe-by-step analysis of the conditions necessary for the progress in spiritual attainment, from the awakening of the mind of enlightenment to the final insight. It is definitely a useful text for understanding Tibetan Buddhism at the core and for comparative studies involving other systems of thought within Buddhism.
