Classic and Contemporary Buddhist Works

The Awakening Mind - Praise

The Foundation of Buddhist Thought, Volume 4

“With this series of books drawn from his highly successful courses, Geshe Tashi’s insights can be enjoyed by a wide audience of both specialists and newcomers to the Buddhist tradition. His presentations, never divorced from the basic humanity and warmth of his personality, combine rigor and accessibility.”—Thupten Jinpa, principal translator for His Holiness the Dalai Lama and director of the Institute of Tibetan Classics

“These books may not be a single experience for you, but the beginning of a whole course of study. Whatever the case, they are thorough, easy to read and accessible.”—Buddhism Now

“Provides a simple and systematic introduction to Buddhist philosophy and practice.”—Eastern Horizon

“Although coming from a traditional Gelugpa presentation of the Buddhist path, these books are written for a modern western audience, and therefore ‘happiness’ is presented as a principle goal, alongside the more traditional goal of enlightenment. The author’s personal tone and his fluent language, combined with his obvious mastery of the material help to make the series a tremendously valuable resource for the study of basic Buddhist teachings from a Tibetan perspective.”—Buddhadharma
