Emptiness - Praise

The Foundation of Buddhist Thought, Volume 5

Geshe Tashi’s insights can be enjoyed by a wide audience of both specialists and newcomers to the Buddhist tradition. His presentations, never divorced from the basic humanity and warmth of his personality, combine rigor and accessibility.—Thupten Jinpa, principal translator for the Dalai Lama and director of the Institute of Tibetan Classics

Although coming from a traditional Gelugpa presentation of the Buddhist path, these books are written for a modern western audience, and therefore ‘happiness’ is presented as a principle goal, alongside the more traditional goal of enlightenment. The author’s personal tone and his fluent language, combined with his obvious mastery of the material, help to make the series a tremendously valuable resource for the study of basic Buddhist teachings from a Tibetan perspective.Buddhadharma

Geshe Tashi’s systematic approach to Buddhist thought allows readers to gradually but surely enhance their knowledge of Buddhism without feeling overwhelmed.Eastern Horizon
