Reviews

"Lucidly written with a conversational style, this book beckons you into a shining world of rational insight, glistening with light, and reveals how to utilize the gifts of your own mind. Magnificent, highly accessible."--Jeffrey Hopkins, author of Meditation on Emptiness

"In the great monastic universities of Tibet, two modes of learning were central: memorization and debate. Tibetan debate is known in the West more for its color than for its content. Daniel Perdue explains with patient clarity just how Tibetan monastic debate works."--Donald S. Lopez Jr., author of From Stone to Flesh: A Short History of the Buddha

"Daniel Perdue's book presents in a lucid and engaging manner the methods and practice of the remarkable debate system of Tibetan monastic education. For the first time, the contemporary English reader has the chance to experience the clarity, swiftness, and precision of thinking that the Tibetan debate training is so famous for."--Thupten Jinpa, principal English translator to H.H. the Dalai Lama and author of Essential Mind Training
