About the Author:

Born in the Tsang region of Tibet in 1923, Geshe Lhundub Sopa is both a spiritual master and a respected academic. He rose from a humble background to complete his geshe studies at Sera Je Monastic University in Lhasa with highest honors and was privileged to serve as a debate opponent for the Dalai Lama's own geshe examination in 1959. He moved to New Jersey in the United States in 1963 and in 1967 began teaching in the Buddhist Studies Program at University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he is now professor emeritus. In 1975, he founded the Deer Park Buddhist Center in Oregon, Wisconsin, site of the Dalai Lama's first Kalachakra initiation granted in the West. He is the author of several books in English, including the five-volume comprehensive teaching, Steps on the Path to Englightenment.

Leonard Zwilling studied with Geshe Wangyal from 1967 to 1978 and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a BA in 1970, going on to receive an MA in Hindu studies (1972) and a PhD in Buddhist studies (1976) also at UW-Madison. His dissertation, on apoha in Buddhist logic, was directed by Geshe Lhundub Sopa. He did predoctoral research in Sri Lanka (1973-74) and Nepal (1974-75) under Ford Foundation and Fulbright-Hays scholarships. From 1977 to 1983 Dr. Zwilling taught Asian religions, Sanskrit, and Tibetan at UW-Madison and elsewhere. He received an MLS from UW-Madison in 1985 and from 1986 to 2009 was the general editor and bibliographer of the Dictionary of American Regional English in the department of English at UW-Madison, where he is presently senior scientist emeritus. Dr. Zwilling has published in a number of fields, and since 2005 his work has centered on Ippolito Desideri and missions in Tibet.

Michael Sweet received a PhD in Buddhist Studies in 1977 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison under the direction of Geshe Lhundub Sopa. From 1977-78 he taught and did research at the American Institute of Buddhist Studies. After later graduate studies, he was a psychotherapist in public and private practice (1980-2004) and a sometime lecturer at UW Madison, where he has been an assistant clinical professor in the Department of Psychiatry. He has written extensively on the history of sexuality in South Asia and on Buddhist Studies. Since 2001 his research has focused on Ippolito Desideri and the Catholic missions in Tibet. Current research focuses on the first mission to Tibet, led by the Portuguese Jesuit Antonio de Andrade.

Review:

"Tibetan mind-training literature is rich and varied, as the two poems translated here prove. [They are] full of potent imagery. Geshe Sopa is one of the rare Buddhist studies scholars with a traditional Tibetan education. This top-ranking geshe gives these rare texts the first-rate commentary they deserve." (Shambhala Sun magazine)

"Buddhist practitioners and scholars will welcome this important contribution to the growing body of Tibetan Buddhist wisdom in English. 'Mind training' (blo sbyong) is the principal method Tibetans use to develop Mahayana Buddhist attitudes; Geshe Sopa's explanation makes these ancient ideals come alive. Also, the historical introduction by Michael Sweet and Leonard Zwilling sheds new light on the formation of the Kadam tradition, and the edited Tibetan texts provide a solid foundation for further study." (Prof. John Newman, New College.)

"Peacock in the Poison Grove is one of the finest books ever published on the Kadam tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, whose basic program of 'mind training' (lojong) was adopted or adapted by every other Tibetan order. The two long poems translated here, attributed to Atisa's guru, Dharmaraksita, are among the oldest and most dramatic of the mind-training texts, woven as they are of startling imagery and a quintessentially Tibetan admixture of sutra and tantra practices, as well as conventional and ultimate perspectives on the world. Peacock in the Poison Grove provides lucid translations of the texts, and a humane and learned commentary revealing why Geshe Sopa has long been regarded as one of the greatest living scholars of Tibetan Buddhism. Sweet and Zwilling's historical and thematic introduction is a model of textual detective-work and lucid contextualization, which helps us understand the world in which these poems arose and why they continue to speak to us today. Peacock in the Poison Grove belongs on the shelf--and a readily accessible one at that!--of every scholar and every practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism." (Professor Roger Jackson, Carleton College, author of Is Enlightenment Possible?)

"This is a wonderful, even inspiring, book meant both for the head and for the heart. The translation of these two classic texts is elegant, Geshe Sopa's commentary [is] insightful, and the introduction provides us with a model for what all historical and thematic contextualizations of Tibetan texts should look like. A magnificent resource for the practitioner and scholar alike." (Professor Jose Cabezon, University of California, author of Buddhism, Sexuality and Gender)

"An outstanding scholar-monk, Geshe Sopa has made tremendous contributions to the understanding of Tibetan Buddhism. It is wonderful his students are making available his teachings." (Gelek Rinpoche, spiritual director of the Jewel Heart centers)

"Being learned, pure in morality, and compassionate, Geshe Sopa is an incomparable example of a Dharma teacher." (Lama Zopa Rinpoche, author of Transforming Problems into Happiness)

"Read this book and feel the presence of one of the world's great hearts and minds." (Professor Jeffrey Hopkins, University of Virginia, author of Meditation on Emptiness)

"Geshe Lhundub Sopa's character and learning have inspired me from the start of my practice of Buddhism. As is evidenced by his being the first among the top rung of geshes graduating his year, he is a vertiable well-spring of knowledge. His name means 'Spontaneity and Patience.' His training was so sustained and deep that his kindness is spontaneous. His patience over these many decades has been brought to perfection as only wisdom can do. Read this book and feel the presence of one of the world's great hearts and minds. These qualities drew to him two great collaborators, Michael J. Sweet and Leonard Zwilling." (Jeffrey Hopkins, author of Meditation on Emptiness)

"Geshe Sopa is one of the great living Lamas we have today." (Lama Surya Das, author of Awakening the Buddha Within)
