“The multivolume anthology to which this volume belongs was conceived by the Dalai Lama to bring together select texts in translation from the Tengyur, the Tibetan language canonical collection of Indian Buddhist writings. While the volumes on the physical world and mind comprise texts that represent scientific presentations, the forthcoming two volumes will represent philosophical works from Indian Buddhist authors. The project is an astonishing feat of collaboration that involved the efforts of many minds. Under the direction of the Dalai Lama, a team of Tibetan scholars selected important passages from the canon and wrote essays in Tibetan that interwove these key passages into coherent chapters.”
