He has published more than twenty-five books, including Meditation on Emptiness, a seminal work of English language scholarship on Tibetan Madhyamaka thought, as well as translations of works by Tsongkhapa, Dolpopa, and His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama. At the University of Virginia he founded programs in Buddhist Studies and Tibetan Studies and served as Director of the Center for South Asian Studies for twelve years.
"One of the great classics... Few subsequent works can be said to equal it in profundity and accessibility."--Jose Ignacio Cabezon, University of California, Santa Barbara "It brought for the first time a sophisticated account of Tibetan interpretrations of Madhyamaka, which was an enormous resource for those interested in Buddhist philosophy."--Georges Dreyfus "A rich, comprehensive treatment of emptiness in the Indo-Tibetan Buddhist tradition by the remarkable Western scholar and frequent English translator for His Holiness the Dalai Lama. This is still the standard text on the subject, twenty-five years after its initial publication."--Rev. Danny Fisher
