    This is the first full study, translated and critically annotated of the Essence of True Eloquence by Tsong Khapa (1357-1419) universally acknowledge as the greatest Tibetan Philosopher. The work is a study of the major schools of Mahayana Buddhism, known as Vijnanavada and Madhyamika and an explanation of the Prasangika interpretation of Madhyamika (" Centrism"). The translation and introduction supplement our view of Buddhism as a contemplative and "mystical" religion and reveal a rigorous, critical philosophy.
