Changing Minds

Contributions to the Study of Buddhism and Tibet in Honor of Jeffrey Hopkins


Formats & editions


A repurposed and hearty tribute to the Western master of Tibetan Buddhism, Jeffrey Hopkins.

This is a book offered in tribute to Jeffrey Hopkins by colleagues and former students. Hopkins has, in his several decades of work, made profound and diverse contributions to the understanding of Tibet and Tibetan Buddhism in the West. In his collaborations with the Dalai Lama, such as Kindness, Clarity, and Insight, and in books like Tibetan Arts of Love and Emptiness Yoga, Hopkins has reached out to the general reader, making the wisdom of Tibet accessible to all English speakers. Though there is never anything superficial about his work, his Emptiness in the Mind-Only School is a magisterial display of painstaking scholarly work.

Changing Minds contains essays that reflect the breadth and influence of Hopkins’s work. Topics presented include the two truths, the object of negation, the results of anger, the founding of the Gelug order, Bon Dzogchen, mahamudra, foundational consciousness, altruism, and adversity. Contributors include John Buescher, Guy Newland, Donald Lopez, Elizabeth Napper, Daniel Cozort, John Powers, Roger Jackson, Gareth Sparham, Joe B. Wilson, José Cabezón, Harvey Aronson, and Paul Hackett.
