This volume contains a useful introduction to emptiness as elucidated by the great scholar-practitioner Je Tsongkhapa (1357-1419), one of the most influential Lamas in Tibetan Buddhism.

"Written with illumination from a terrific scholar."
--Jeffrey Hopkins, author of A Truthful Heart and translator of How to See Yourself as You Really Are and Becoming Enlightened by H.H. the Dalai Lama

"This magnificent, readable, and thoroughly engaging work is a modern classic in the making. It invites new practitioners and learned scholars alike to look afresh at the dazzling array of teachings from one of the greatest figures in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, Je Tsongkhapa, writing to teach his own students the most profound meaning of all, the core of the path to liberation."
--Anne Carolyn Klein, Rice University, author of Meeting the Great Bliss Queen and Unbounded Wholeness

"Introduction to Emptiness is a marvellously clear, marvellously precise exposition of Tsong-kha-pa's understanding of emptiness and of the two truths as presented by Nagarjuna and Chandrakirti.... While the exposition is rich in technical detail and textual reference...it is absolutely accessible to the beginning student. It will be required reading in my Buddhist philosophy courses."
--Jay L. Garfield, author of Ocean of Reasoning: A Great Commentary on Nagarjuna's Mulamadhyamakakarika
