Dolpopa's Masterpiece

Dolpopa's masterpiece work on zhentong is now available in English.

Title : " Mountain Doctrine: Tibet's Fundamental Treatise on Other-Emptiness and the Buddha Matrix "
Translator : Jeffrey Hopkins, Professor Emeritus at UVA
Publisher : Snow Lion, 2006
Review : " The Mountain Doctrine of Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen is one of the great monuments of Tibetan philosophic

al literature. For nearly 700 years Dolpopa's work has been a fundamental source of inspiration for practitioners attracted to the definitive meaning of the Buddha's teachings. Jeffrey Hopkins deserves our sincere gratitude for making this profound message finally available to students of the Dharma outside Tibet." ---Cyrus Stearns
