Praise For Echoes from an Empty Sky: The Origins of the Buddhist Doctrine of the Two Truths…
"In Echoes from an Empty Sky, John Buescher offers a clear and accessible translation of an early nineteenth-century Tibetan overview of one of the most famous doctrines in Buddhist philosophy: the two truths. In a substantial introduction, he traces the history of the relation between language and truth in ancient India, focusing especially on the question of the conventional and ultimate nature of the Buddha's words."—Donald S. Lopez Jr., Carl W. Belser Professor of Buddhist and Tibetan Studies, University of Michigan
"A terrific book crucial for understanding and penetrating the false veils of appearance."—Jeffrey Hopkins, Professor, University of Virginia
