This revised edition of Cyrus Stearns's The Buddha from Dolpo is a must read for all interested in the intellectual history of Tibet. New translations of some of the key works of Dolpopa open philosophical and cosmological ideas of one of the great thinkers of the Tibetan tradition. This is a marvellous piece of scholarship.--E. Gene Smith, founder and senior research scholar, Tibetan Buddhist Resource Center., Tibetan Buddhist Resource Center

The first edition of The Buddha from Dolpo was like a brilliant beam of light for the first time illuminating the dark chamber of Dolpopa's long-buried legacy, opening the eyes of many to the inspiring life and teachings of one of the greatest masters of Tibetan Buddhism. This new carefully revised and enlarged edition is like the sun shining through all the windows of this chamber, revealing many essential jewels in the treasury of Dolpopa's thought. It is a true masterpiece that re-establishes Dolpopa's so important, but long-denied, place in Tibetan Buddhist history. Highly recommended reading for all who are interested in going beyond sectarian biases and wish to understand what this towering figure had to say on his own ground and in his own terms.--Karl Brunnholzl, author of The Center of the Sunlit Sky

This extended version of Stearns's seminal work on Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen provides not only an in-depth insight into the life and thought of Dolpopa, but it also gives us a wonderful synthesis of the shentong tradition in Tibet and Jonang's interpretations of the Kalacakratrantra. Stearns's lucid translation of the selected works demonstrates his intimate familiarity with Dolpopa's views and makes it accessible to the reader. This book should be a primary reader for every student and scholar interested in the Jonang and Kalacakra traditions.--Vesna Wallace, author of The Inner Kalacakratantra

Cyrus Strearns' The Buddha from Dolpo is among the major contributions to the history of Tibetan Buddhism in recent years. This new, expanded edition amplifies and extends Stearns' innovative inquiry into the life and works of the remarkable fourteenth-century teacher Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen, master of the Kalacakra, founder of the zhentong philosophical tradition, and architect without peer. The Buddha from Dolpo is essential reading for all serious students of the Dharma in the Land of Snows.--Matthew T. Kapstein, Director of Tibetan Studies, Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes (Paris), Numata Visiting Professor of Buddhist Studies, The University of Chicago

Review Author: David HutchensReview Source: The Middle WayReview Date: May, 2011Review Content: "Buddha from Dolpo is a very readable account of Dolpopa's life and teachings. Although it is clearly a serious, indeed scholarly work, it happily avoids the routine use of non-Buddhist academic language. The book was originally published in 1999, and now Cyrus Stearns has produced an enlarged and revised edition, which includes some newly translated material. The first half includes an outline of Dolpopa's life and times, a historical account of the Shentong tradition in Tibet, and an overview of his teaching. The second part comprises translations and there are also extensive endnotes and a detailed index. It is recommended as essential reading for anyone curious about this remarkable teacher and the Shentong tradition."---David Hutchens for The Middle Way

A revised and expanded edition of a foundational work of scholarship that was originally published in 1999 and has since gone out of print.... Highly accessible.... In addition to a new translation not included in the original, this edition includes information from newly available Tibetan texts and scholarship, as well as many new illustrations." Alexander Gardner, Buddhadharma: The Practitioner s Quarterly

The Buddha from Dolpo is the most significant contribution to the study of the life and revelations of one of the most enigmatic personalities in Tibetan intellectual history, the Jonang master Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen (1292-1361). Narrating Dolpopa's life story and evolution of thought, Cyrus Stearns lucidly describes how this foremost exponent of shentong philosophical thinking and Kalachakra tantric practice served as the catalyst figure for the Jonang Buddhist tradition during its formative period in fourteenth-century Tibet. A decade after its first publication, this revised and enlarged edition includes several significant refinements and additions, including a translation of Dolpopa's own commentary on his masterful work concerning the calculations of cosmic time according to shentong literature known as the Fourth Council. With this revision, Stearns secures The Buddha from Dolpo its place within the western language canon of scholarship on Tibetan Buddhism, making it an essential read for understanding Dolpopa's presentation of shentong, the Kalachakra Tantra in Tibet, and the early Jonang Buddhist tradition.--Michael R. Sheehy, Ph.D., Senior Editor of Tibetan Literary Research at the Tibetan Buddhist Resource Center and Executive Director of Jonang Foundation

Reseña del editor:

The Buddha from Dolpo is a revised and enlarged edition of the only book about the most controversial Buddhist master in the history of Tibet, Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen (1292-1361), who became perhaps the greatest Tibetan expert of the Kalacakra or Wheel of Time, a vast system of tantric teachings. Based largely on esoteric Buddhist knowledge from the legendary land of Shambhala, Dolpopa's insights have profoundly influenced the development of Tibetan Buddhism for more than 650 years. Dolpopa emphasized two contrasting definitions of the Buddhist theory of emptiness. He described relative phenomena as empty of self-nature, but absolute reality as only empty of other (i.e. relative) phenomena. He further identified absolute reality as the buddha nature or eternal essence present in all living beings. This view of an "emptiness of other," known in Tibetan as shentong, is Dolpopa's enduring legacy. The Buddha from Dolpo contains the only English translations of three of Dolpopa's crucial works. A General Commentary on the Doctrine is one of the earliest texts in which he systematically presented his view of the entire Buddhist path to enlightenment. The Fourth Council and its Autocommentary (which was not in the first edition of this book) were written at the end of his life and represent a final summation of his teachings. These translations are preceded by a detailed discussion of Dolpopa's life, his revolutionary ideas, earlier precedents for the shentong view, his unique use of language, and the influence of his theories. The fate of his Jonang tradition, which was censored by the central Tibetan government in the seventeenth century but still survives, is also examined.
