Reviews

"Geshe Thupten Jinpa is one of the foremost interpreters of Tibetan Buddhism for the modern world, and each of his translations of Tibetan classics as well as books by His Holiness the Dalai Lama is a jewel. With his classic Buddhist monastic training culminating in his earning the coveted Geshe Lharam degree and his superb Western education culminating in his doctorate in religious studies from Cambridge University, he brings an unparalleled depth of vision to the significance of Buddhism in the modern world. With the greatest respect, I recommend this latest volume of his marvelous translations of the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism."--B. Alan Wallace, president, Santa Barbara Institute for Consciousness Studies
"Thupten Jinpa shines as an interpreter of classical Buddhism for our times. In Wisdom of the Kadam Masters he shows how these pithy sayings from long ago offer anyone sound principles for living a meaningful, fulfilling, and happy life."--Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence
