  • The commentary, Feast for the Fortunate, is the ninth Karmapa’s abridgement of the eighth Karmapa, Mikyö Dorje’s masterpiece, The Chariot of the Takpo Kagyü Siddhas. In it readers will find previously unavailable material on the Karmapa’s Middle Way view and a rare window into a philosophically charged era of Middle Way exposition in Tibetan Buddhism. Wangchuk Dorje’s comprehensive commentary on the Indian master Chandrakirti’s seminal text, the Madhyamakavatara, is marked by eloquent poetry, vigorous and extensive analysis, and heart instructions on breaking through the veils of confusion to independently experience the true nature of things. Includes root text and commentary by the ninth Karmapa Rangjung Dorje, translated by Tyler Dewar.
