Review by Patrick Lambelet forthcoming.


This is a book offered in tribute to Jeffrey Hopkins, a doyen in Tibetan Buddhist studies, containing essays by his colleagues and former students that reflect the breadth and influence of Hopkins’s work. The following topics are presented: the two truths, the object of negation, the results of anger, the founding of the Gelug order, Bön Dzogchen, Mahamudra, foundational consciousness, altruism, and adversity. Contributors include John Buescher, Guy Newland, Donald Lopez, Elizabeth Napper, Daniel Cozort, John Powers, Anne Klein, Roger Jackson, Gareth Sparham, Joe B. Wilson, José Cabezón, and more.

Jeffrey Hopkins has, in his over seventy years, 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 The Heart of Meditation, 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 everyone.
