Praise for Practical Ethics and Profound Emptiness

“Khensur Jampa Tegchok was renowned in life as a Madhyamaka scholar with a profound understanding of emptiness. His teachings on Nagarjuna’s Precious Garland, rendered into clear and entirely readable English by Bhikshu Steve Carlier and Bhikshuni Thubten Chodron, leave no room for doubt that Khensur-la had thoroughly unraveled the relationship between the conventionally functioning law of actions and their effects and the ultimate reality of the lack of inherent existence of self and all phenomena. This book is a must for any Dharma practitioner trying to do the same.” —Joan Nicell, editor of Purification in Tibetan Buddhism

“Though written to a king and composed over eighteen centuries ago, this poetic text by Nagarjuna, the Precious Garland, offers advice like no other, for it guides us in leading a wise, compassionate, and ethical life even in tumultuous times like our own. A clear, readable, and urgent call to ethical action. This work offers amazing spot-on advice for our times, especially for our leaders and policy-makers.” —Jan Willis, author of Dreaming Me
