One of the most important concepts in Mahayana Buddhism is the concept of Emptiness. We have external experiences that appear, but when they are examined closely in four careful analyses of the Middle-way (Madhyamaka) they are found to have insubstantiality or inherent reality. This fact has led the Buddha and many highly realized masters to declare that our reality is like a mirage, a dream, a drop of dew. In this book written for the practitioner, Thrangu Rinpoche very lucidly goes through the arguments of how things can be "empty" using examples and non-technical language.

Understanding emptiness is important because if we don't fully comprehend the insubstantiality of phenomena, we cannot actually reduce our attachment to the world. Without this, we cannot develop true, universal compassion for all sentient beings.

In this book, Thrangu Rinpoche gives a careful evaluation of the four great analyses of Mipham Rinpoche in his Gateway to Knowledge in a simple, direct, and practical manner.

"The teachings of Thrangu Rinpoche, the supreme lord of refuge and great abbot, are to be taken not as mere commentary upon the words and an explanation of their meaning, but rather as actual blessings and instructions drawn from his experience, ornamented by love, compassion, and realization. "
--Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche
This revised and expanded edition includes an English translation of the source text.
