The Tantric Distinction: A Buddhist’s Reflections On Compassion And EmptinessBy Jeffrey Hopkins
“The ideas, concepts, and methods of various religions must be tried on for size, must be lifted above museum displays, must be confronted and allowed to resonate with one’s own character. It is in this spirit that… I present here a personalized account of central Buddhist practices.”—from the author’s preface.
Widely recognized as one of the West’s leading scholars of Tibetan Buddhism, Professor Jeffrey Hopkins is renowned for his textual translations and original scholarship. For ten years he served as the principal English translator for His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The Tantric Distinction is his effort to make accessible the complexities of this highly sophisticated philosophy by sharing his personal, individual experience with Buddhist thought and practice. It lays out the entire Buddhist path as a living experience.
