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

Présentation de l'éditeur

Middle Beyond Extremes contains a translation of the Buddhist masterpiece Distinguishing the Middle from Extremes. This famed text, often referred to by its Sanskrit title, Madhyantavibhaga, is part of a collection known as the Five Maitreya Teachings. Maitreya, the Buddha's regent, is held to have entrusted these profound and vast instructions to the master Asanga in the heavenly realm of Tushita.

In pithy verses, Distinguishing the Middle from Extremes employs the principle of the three natures to explain the way things seem to be, as well as the way they actually are. Unraveling the subtle processes that condition our thinking and experience, Maitreya's teaching reveals a powerful path of compassionate vision and spiritual transformation. Distinguishing the Middle from Extremes is here presented alongside commentaries by two outstanding masters of Tibet's nonsectarian Rimé movement: Khenpo Shenga and Ju Mipham. Maitreya and Asanga, who lived during the fourth century C.E., are the progenitors of the Approach of Vast Activity, one of two great currents of Mahayana view and practice. Their works have achieved the status of unique spiritual classics.

Maitreya describes the multifaceted interdependent processes whereby consciousness manifests and expresses itself. When on this path of experience we equally acknowledge the expressions of mind and their intrinsic nature, we will, he promises, discover a flawless and bountiful perspective—a discovery of unlimited resources. Maitreya's terse instructions are accompanied here by two commentaries.

The first, by Khenpo Shenga (1871–1927), intersperses glosses and explanatory remarks between the words of the root text. Unique to Shenga's approach is that he literally never adds a word of his own—all of his comments are extracted verbatim from the classical commentary of Vasubandhu. The second commentary, by Ju Mipham (1846–1912), seeks to explain and provide clear solutions by taking up the issues set forth in the verses and offering his understanding of them.

HASH(0x906e51c8) étoiles sur 5 Excellent Edition, Going Back to Indian Sources 16 août 2013

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.
HASH(0x906e521c) étoiles sur 5 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.
HASH(0x906e54f8) étoiles sur 5 Good text with a caveat 18 mars 2014
Par A reader - Publié sur

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,
HASH(0x906e53f0) étoiles sur 5 A crucial read for grokking the middle path 10 octobre 2014

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.

I don't know why they re-list this as a different item. Search the title and you will find much cheaper price. I made the mistake of paying 2-3x higher.
