Revue de presse

"A valuable contribution to scholarship and one worthy of study. [Dr. Karl Brunnholzl's] approach to the text is both intellectual and experiential, showing how a clear understanding of what can appear to be a dauntingly complex text can be used to deepen practice."—The Middle Way

Présentation de l'éditeur

Madhyamaka is a potent and universally accessible means of calming our suffering and awakening to our innate wisdom. The Center of the Sunlit Sky artfully rescues this brilliant teaching from its unwarranted reputation for intellectual opacity and reinstates it as a supremely practical tool kit for everyday living. The aim of this book is to take Madhyamaka out of the purely intellectual corner into which it unjustly gets boxed. It is an attempt to show how Madhayamaka actually addresses and works with all of our experiences in life.

The book follows the original Indian sources as well as the standard commentaries on Madhyamaka in the Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism. At the same time, these materials are adapted for a contemporary audience, combining the familiar sharpness of Madhyamaka reasonings (launching a massive assault on our cherished belief systems) with exploring the practical relevance of the Madhyamaka way of mind training.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The first volume of the Nitartha Institute Series 4 janvier 2005
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The first volume of the Nitartha Institute Series, and a studity text for Naropa University's Buddhist Studies program, The Center Of The Sunlit Sky: Madhyamaka In The Kagyu Tradition presents the tradition of Madhyamaka Buddhism as more than a purely intellectual exercise, showing how it directly addresses daily life experience. Chapters discuss understanding of two realities, Madhyamaka meditation, the distinctions beteween Autonomists and Consequentialists, and much more. Overall, The Center Of The Sunlit Sky is a determined effort to publish a thorough understanding of the Kagyu view of Mad-hyamaka for Western readers. Though undoubtedly meant for those already familiar with Buddhism's basic tenets, The Center Of The Sunlit Sky presents complex philosophical and spiritual precepts in as clear and direct terms as possible for Western minds. A "must-have" for anyone seeking to better understand the Madhyamaka Buddhism as has been practiced in Tibet for centuries.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Immersion into the concept of emptiness 27 décembre 2009
Par J. Conant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
For anyone interested in Madhyamaka philosophy, Brunnhölzl does an amazingly thorough job presenting it in great detail. He does not present it as an outsider describing Buddhist philosophy in a dry and academic fashion, but rather as a practitioner who has significant meditative experience. In addition to explaining the Madhyamaka point of view, Brunnhölzl gives much practical advice of how to apply it in our daily lives. The idea that all phenomena are empty of inherent nature is a core feature of Buddhism, and yet it is a concept totally foreign to our everyday way of thinking. This book has the effect of immersing the reader in an environment where the idea of emptiness becomes more and more apparent, until, finally, it is actually plain obvious common sense. The book also takes care to distinguish how the Kagyu lineage in particular views Madhyamaka philosophy, as opposed to the later Gelug tradition pioneered by Tsongkhapa.

I often read this book in preparation for analytical meditation. It really primes the pump, putting my mind in a state where the meditation comes very naturally.

This is a difficult but worthwhile text. I found it particularly difficult because it uses different terms than I am used to finding in books on Tibetan Buddhism. For "Middle Way", Karl Brunnholzl uses "Centrist". For "Prasangika", he uses "Consequentialist". For "Svatantrika", he uses "autonomists". These terms really have no meaning for me; so I have found the book a hard read. There is still a lot of great information although I do think the writer is negligent in defining his terms more clearly and even the individuals he writes about. He will mention Pawo Rinpoche, for example, without refreshing ones memory and saying this is the 2nd Pawo, Tsuglag Threngwa.(1504-1566), a contemporary of the eigth Karmapa. You will probably need to read this book many times before really absorbing the wonderful insights it has to offer.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Crowley, Vivianne. “Review: 'The Center of the Sunlit Sky: Madhyamaka in the Kagyü Tradition, by Karl Brunnhölzl 3 avril 2015
Par Vivianne Crowley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Crowley, Vivianne. “Review: 'The Center of the Sunlit Sky: Madhyamaka in the Kagyü Tradition, by Karl Brunnhölzl.” The Middle Way: Journal of the Buddhist Society 80, no. 4 (February 2006): 246-247.

The Center of the Sunlit Sky is a weighty tome and Madhyamaka is not for beginners. For those familiar with Madhyamaka teaching, however, and for those following the Kagyü Tradition, The Center of the Sunlit Sky is a valuable contribution to scholarship and a book worthy of study. It provides a comprehensive presentation of the unique Kagyü view of Madhyamaka and, as the first volume of the Nitartha Institute Series, under the guidance of The Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, forms part of a pioneering effort to make Kagyü scholarship more widely available to those not able to read Tibetan.
The Center of the Sunlit Sky is based on Pawo Rinpoche's sixteenth-century commentary on the ninth chapter of eighth century master Shantideva's Bodhicaryavatara, ‘The Entrance to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life’, a guide for those wishing to actualise the practices of the six paramitas. The largest part of the book, Part One, ‘The General Presentation of Madhyamaka in the Kagyü Tradition’, gives Karl Brunnhölzl’s overview of the transmission of Madhyamaka from India to Tibet and its relation to Vajrayana and Mahamudra, followed by a general presentation of Madhyamaka in terms of ground, path, and fruition. Further chapters are devoted to the Autonomist-Consequentialist distinction, the issue of whether there is a ‘Shentong- Madhyamaka’, the distinction between expedient and definitive meaning, and a helpful explanation of the major differences between the Eighth Karmapa's and Tsongkhapa's interpretations of Madhyamaka. In Part Two, Karl Brunnhölzl gives a brief introduction to the Bodhicaryavatara and a translation of the Pawo Rinpoche's commentary on its ninth chapter, which focuses on the paramita of prajña, here translated as ‘knowledge’.
For those unfamiliar with Madhyamaka, Karl Brunnhölzl explains it by a series of negations. Madhyamaka is not a philosophy, religion, doctrine or a historical school of thought, belief system, linguistic theory or psychotherapy. It is not agnostic, nihilistic, existentialist or an intellectual mind game. Madhyamaka is direct and incontrovertible experience of ultimate reality within one’s own mind, not so much a ‘middle way’ as unobstructed, supple and relaxed openness.

By taking any standpoint whatsoever,
You will be snatched by the cunning snakes of the afflictions.
Those whose minds have no standpoint
Will not be caught.
Nagarjuna, Sixty Stanzas on Reasoning, quoted in The Center of the Sunlit Sky, p.34.

The Second Pawo Rinpoche, Tsugla Trengwa (1504-1566) received the majority of his education from the Eighth Karmapa and was a teacher to the Ninth Karmapa. The author and translator, Dr. Karl Brunnhölzl, studied Tibetology and received systematic training in Tibetan language and Buddhist philosophy and practice at the Marpa Institute for Translators, founded by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche. His approach to the text is therefore both intellectual and experiential, showing a clear understanding of how what can appear a dauntingly complex text can be used to deepen practice.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Standard Reference on Madhyamaka 20 mai 2012
Par WilliamMcKay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Primary material is translated from the Indian sources such as Nagarjuna, Aryadeva, Buddhapalita, Candrakriti, Shantarakshita, Kamalashila, Atisha, PP Sutras and much more, so you don't have to buy multiple books.

The translations are excellent and free from Gelugpa bias.

Don't let the word "Kagyu" fool you. Other scholars say this book is THE standard reference on Madhyamaka.
