Revue de presse

"In his Five Teachings, the protector Maitreya the Regent, who has mastered the ten grounds, reveals fully and flawlessly the view, meditation, conduct, and fruition that is accomplished through the Great Vehicle. With utmost profundity, his teachings reach far and wide; they are a treasury of scripture, reasoning, and oral instruction."—Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche

"This is the most readable translation I have ever seen of Maitreya's profound text Distinguishing the Middle from Extremes, together with two of the most incisive commentaries from Tibet. The translation is so lucid and precise, even one sentence can pull the reader toward deep experience of meaning. Invaluable for scholars and meditators, this is a work to be celebrated."—John Makransky, Associate Professor of Buddhism, Boston College

"This timely volume is a much welcomed addition to our body of Yogacara literature in translation. This profound text—one of the five Yogacara treatises associated with the legendary Indian master Maitreya—is both an analysis of the extreme views to which we are all too prone and a succinct summary of the Middle Path that takes us beyond extremes. The translation of the root verses is accompanied by two recent Tibetan commentaries. The first carefully elucidates the often cryptic verses themselves, while the second fully elaborates their sense and application. Together the text and its commentaries provide a comprehensive and accessible outline of the Yogacara view of reality. It is essential for any serious student of Yogacara."—William S. Waldron,  Associate Professor of Religion, Middlebury College

"Academics and serious students will gain from it a key to many other Tibetan Buddhist texts and a rigorously tested foundation for Buddhist practice."—Thar Lam

"This is a fine translation . . . of a seminal text in Indian and Tibetan Buddhist traditions. It is accompanied by two commentaries that together make this notoriously difficult text surprisingly readable. . . . Represents a major contribution, of which scholars as well as practitioners will want to take note."—Religious Studies Review

"This fascinating translation of Maitreya's Madhyantavibhaga is a lynchpin for students of the classics. . . . The end-path of this critically important text is to aid the seeker in discerning reality free of dualistic extremes. This translation does that job admirably well. . . . Of value to the reader is a superb 23-page English-Tibetan-Sanskrit glossary."—New Age Retailer

Excellent Edition, Going Back to Indian Sources 16 août 2013
Par Pacific9 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This text, along with its companion volume, Distinguishing Phenomena from Their Intrinsic Nature: Maitreya's Dharmadharmatavibhanga with Commentaries by Khenpo Shenga and Ju Mipham, is one of the best resources I have found on this text. There is another recent translation, also quite good in that includes Vasubandhu's commentary. But this translation has Khenpo Shenga's "commentary" which are mostly quotes from Vasubandhu. And Mipham Rinpoche's commentary is unbelievably clear. I hope that more of these Maitreya texts come out with these helpful commentaries.
I liked it and basically understood the contents 17 juin 2015

I liked it and basically understood the contents. This is a very difficult topic and the book is very densely packed, as is the root text. One difficulty is that different translators use different vocabularies sometimes. It seems that in translating these texts into English, the vocabulary has not yet been standardized. It can be a little confusing in that respect. This however is also a blessing. One, because different wordings carry different connotations and no one word can give the whole picture. Two, having to figure what a new translator is talking about compared to your existing vocabulary seemed to help me really process the information more deeply.Your not going to get a thorough grasp of the topic from a single commentary. This book actually contains two commentaries, and the way they are presented along with the root text is very nice.
Good text with a caveat 18 mars 2014
Par A reader - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm not in a position to critique the translation, as I am not familiar with Sanskrit and Tibetan. And it is nice to have these 19th century commentaries, which are important to the Nyingma school. However, it is a little strange that they omitted Vasubandhu's commentary, which is integral to the point that it is practically a part of the text itself. For that you will want Maitreya's Distinguishing the Middle from the Extremes (Madhyantavibhaga) Along with Vasubandhu's Commentary (Madhyantavibhaga-bhasya): A Study and Annotated Translation by Mario D'Amato, http://www.amazon.com/dp/1935011057
A crucial read for grokking the middle path 10 octobre 2014
Par Joe McDonagh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The significance of this work is beyond measure. It's a pretty difficult read, but typically, the tougher the harvest the better the feast. I really love that this translation committee exists and is doing these works. This is a most noble service for us westerners who can't read Tibetan, Chinese, or Sanskrit.

Not such a good translation 28 mars 2012
Par Greg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This english translation of Madhyanta Vibhanga offers some salient points in its interpretation of the Sanskrit classic. However, I found myself bewildered by some of the English words chosen for the Sanskrit counterparts. It doesn't clarify the 'Mind Only' 'distinction' but seems to muddy the waters, as other Tibetan Tenant system proponents seem to do as well.
As a previous reviewer said in his commentary on this book, 'it is complex and requires a lama to help one practice'. I would concur that that is indeed the case with this translation of the 23 verses of the text.
A much better translation is in the book, 'A Buddhist Doctrine of Experience' by Thomas A. Kochumuttom, published by Motilal Banarsidass. Mr. Kochumuttom does an admirable job of dispelling the myth of the 'Mind Only School' that is purported to assume all object are 'all is mind'. With this book one may practice from the text as is, learn to distinguish the middle from the extremes and understand how one's mind clothes the subjects and objects that it encounters, day to day, with an appearance of what those objects are. That appearance is vijnapti, consciousness encountered and created fabrication.
