Introduction To The Middle Way


Formats & editions


Introduction to the Middle Way combines the timeless devotional-scholarly poetry of the seventh-century Indian master Chandrakirti with the illuminating commentary by Jamgön Mipham, a revered Tibetan Buddhist master of the nineteenth century. Chandrakirti is one of several Indian thinkers whose treatises were brought to Tibet and whose realized teachings about the nature of the mind are the foundation of Tibetan Buddhist thought. His text, the Madhyamakavatara, is a masterpiece of the Madhyamaka ("Middle Way") school of Mahayana Buddhism. Mipham's commentary on it, presented in thorough outline form, offers a point-by-point explanation of Chandrakirti's meaning.
