Publisher’s Description: 

An extraordinary collection of writings on buddha nature by the Third Karmapa Rangjung Dorje (1284-1339)--now in paperback.

The Third Karmapa Rangjung Dorje's unique and balanced view synthesizes Yogacara Madhyamaka and the classical teachings on buddha nature. His work focuses on the transition from ordinary deluded consciousness to enlightened wisdom, the characteristics of buddhahood, and a buddha's enlightened activity. Included are commentaries by Jamgn Kongtrul Lodro Taye that supplement the view of the Third Karmapa on two fundamental treatises on buddha nature, emphasizing the luminous empty mind of buddha nature as presented by the great Indian masters Maitreya and Asaga. For those practicing the sutrayana and the vajrayna in the Kagyu tradition, what these texts describe can be transformed into living experience.
