image description

“In this elegant text, the ven Geshe Graham Woodhouse translates Tsongkhapa’s jewel-like masterpiece. The radiance of Tsongkhapa’s poetry is refracted and enhanced by the brilliant and lucid commentary of the late Gen Losang Gyatso.”—Dr. Jay Garfield, Dorris Silbert Professor in Humanities and Professor of Philosophy at Smith College

TSONGKHAPA’S PRAISE FOR DEPENDENT RELATIVITY

Tsongkhapa Lobsang Gyatso Geshe Graham Woodhouse

Tsongkhapa (1357–1419), the author of The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment and the teacher of the First Dalai Lama, is renowned as one of the greatest scholar-saints that Tibet has ever produced. He composed his poetic Praise for Dependent Relativity the very morning that he abandoned confusion and attained the final view, the clear realization of emptiness that is the essence of wisdom. English monk Graham Woodhouse, a longtime student of Buddhism, was living near the Dalai Lama’s residence in northern India when he translated Tsongkhapa’s celebrated text, and he conveys for modern readers the explanation of it he received from his teacher, the late Venerable Lobsang Gyatso.
