Middle Way : Faith Grounded in Reason, Hardcover by Dalai Lama XIV; Thupten Jinpa (TRN), ISBN 0861715527, ISBN-13 9780861715527 An accessibly priced, concise presentation of the Mahayana tradition of Buddhism by the Nobel Peace Prize-winning spiritual leader shares comprehensive coverage of Nagarjuna's teachings, the Buddhist view, and the practice of compassion.
The Dalai Lama opens "The Middle Way" with an elegant argument for the power of compassion in cultivating a happy life. From there, he connects core ideas of Buddhist philosophy to the truths of our shared condition. His Holiness delivers a sparklingly clear teaching on how the Buddhist ideas of emptiness and interdependency relate to personal experience and bring a deeper understanding of the world around us. In down-to-earth style, this book sets forth a comprehensive explanation of the foundational teachings of the Mahayana tradition based on the works of two of Buddhism's most revered figures. Using Nagarjuna's "Middle Way," the Dalai Lama explores Buddhist understandings of selflessness, dependent origination, and the causal processes that lock us in cycles of suffering. He grounds these heady philosophical discussions using Tsongkhapa's "Three Principal Aspects of the Path," presenting a brief explanation of how to put ethical discipline, wisdom, and compassion into practice. Through these beautifully complementary teachings, His Holiness urges us to strive, ""with an objective mind, endowed with a curious skepticism, to engage in careful analysis and seek the reasons behind our beliefs.""

"How fortunate we are to have access to these brilliant teachings given by the Dalai Lama in Toronto in 2004 and now impeccably translated by his principal English translator, Thubten Jinpa. The first half of the book presents the Buddhist path to enlightenment a la Nagarjuna. The second half shows how to put the key elements into practice, and it is here that His Holiness offers a beautiful explanation of Lama Tsongkhapa's Three Principal Aspects of the Path - true renunciation, the altruistic wakening mind and the correct view of emptiness. A truly inspiring book."
"The Dalai Lama can write both broadly accessible and esoteric books on Buddhism; this one is, not surprisingly, right in the middle."
