"This is one of the best introductions to the philosophy of emptiness I have ever read. Although many books about emptiness now exist in Western languages, few manage to convey the meaning of this profound idea as clearly as Insight Into Emptiness. Khensur Jampa Tegchok manages to explain even the most difficult aspects of Middle Way thought in a way that is both accessible and lucid."
--Jose Ignacio Cabezon, religious studies department chair, UC Santa Barbara
"Khensur Rinpoche Jampa Tegchok is renowned among the great monastic universities for his keen understanding of philosophy, and of Madhyamaka in particular. Here you will find vital points and reasoning for a clear understanding of emptiness."
--Lama Zopa Rinpoche, author of "Transforming Problems into Happiness"
"This jewel of a book contains the essence of the teachings on emptiness that Khensur Jampa Tegchog has been imparting to Westerners for over thirty years."
--Kathleen McDonald, author of "How to Meditate"
"It is wonderful to see these authoritative and extremely clear teachings. They ease us, step by step, into deeper understanding of emptiness and its liberating power. Highly recommended!"
--Guy Newland, author of "Introduction to Emptiness"
