Title: A Look at the Diversity of the Gzhan stong Tradition

One Sentence Summary: A Study of the gzhan stong Tradition of Madhyamaka Philosophy in Tibet

Description: Creator's Description: This article introduces two studies by classical Tibetan Buddhist scholars that explain the range of meanings of the term gzhan stong. The two texts – one by Padma bi dza, the other by Tāranātha (1575-1634) – are analytical studies that summarize and compare the various views of previous scholars who wrote on gzhan stong. Such interpretive studies are valuable in that they present us with different ways of interpreting the heterogeneous material classified under the rubric “gzhan stong.” They also suggest ways of contextualizing the different levels of discourse found within this material.
