Feast for the Fortunate

Karmapa's Middle Way - coverThe Karmapa's Middle Way
- Feast for the Fortunate
— by the 9th Karmapa Wangchuk Dorje

Marked by eloquent poetry, vigorous and extensive analysis and heart instructions on breaking through the veils of confusion to independently experience the true nature of things, The Karmapa's Middle Way  contains the Ninth Karmapa Wangchuk Dorje's comprehensive commentary on the Indian master Chandrakirti's seminal text, the Madhyamakavatara  or Entrance to the Middle Way.

This commentary - Feast for the Fortunate  - is the Ninth Karmapa's abridgement of the Eighth Karmapa Mikyo Dorje's masterpiece, the Chariot of the Dakpo Kagyu Siddhas.

9th Karmapa - Wangchuk DorjeIn it, readers will find previously unavailable material on the Karmapa's Middle Way view and a rare window into a philosophically charged era of Madhyamaka (or Middle Way) exposition in Tibetan Buddhism.

Chandrakirti and the Karmapa present in precise detail the vital Buddhist concept of emptiness through which the Mahayana path of compassionate altruism becomes complete.

Introductory material, copious footnotes, appendices, and a reader-centric approach to the language will make this volume equally accessible to the seasoned scholar of Indo-Tibetan Buddhism and the newly curious nonspecialist alike.
