"Groundless Paths completes Karl Brunnh lzl's brilliant three-volume study of Tibetan commentaries on the Ornament of Clear Realization. In this volume, the great nineteenth-century master Patrul Rinpoche adds a Nyingma perspective to the Kagy viewpoints found in Gone Beyond. Altogether, this collection is a marvelous resource for scholars and practitioners who wish to understand the depth and breadth of the Buddhist path."--Andy Karr, author of Contemplating Reality

This third volume completes the presentation of the major Kagy and Nyingma works on the praj aparamita literature in English for the first time."--Elizabeth Callahan, translator of The Treasury of Knowledge: Book Six, Part Three
