Praise for
Practical Ethics and
Profound Emptiness
“Khensur Jampa Tegchok was renowned in life as a Madhyamaka
scholar with a profound understanding of emptiness. His teachings
on Nagarjuna’s Precious Garland, rendered into clear and entirely
readable English by Bhikshu Steve Carlier and Bhikshuni Thubten
Chodron, leave no room for doubt that Khensur-la had thoroughly
unraveled the relationship between the conventionally functioning
law of actions and their effects and the ultimate reality of the lack of
inherent existence of self and all phenomena. This book is a must for
any Dharma practitioner trying to do the same.”
—Joan Nicell, editor of Purification in Tibetan Buddhism
“Though written to a king and composed over eighteen centuries ago,
this poetic text by Nagarjuna, the Precious Garland, offers advice like no
other, for it guides us in leading a wise, compassionate, and ethical life
even in tumultuous times like our own. A clear, readable, and urgent
call to ethical action. This work offers amazing spot-on advice for our
times, especially for our leaders and policy-makers.”
—Jan Willis, author of Dreaming Me
