The second volume presents an English translation of the final five chapters and its commentary by the Fifth Shamarpa. Groundless Paths contains the first in-depth study of the Abhisamayalamkara the text studied most extensively in higher Tibetan Buddhist education and its commentaries from the perspective of the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism.
This study consists mainly of translations of Maitreya's famous text and two commentaries on it by Patrul Rinpoche. These are supplemented by three short texts on the paths and bhumis by the same author, as well as extensive excerpts from commentaries by six other Nyingma masters, including Mipham Rinpoche.

In Elaborations on emptiness, Donald Lopez explores for the first time the elaborate philosophical and ritual uses of the Heart Sutra in India, Tibet, and the west. The result is a wise book of deep teaching destined to become the standard edition of this timeless statement of Mahayana truth. The "Heart Sutra Explained" offers new insights of "emptiness and form," and on the mantra, "gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha," and on the synthesis of Madhyamika, Yogacara, and tantric thought that characterized the final period of Buddhism in India.
