Book Review: The Moon of Wisdom: Chapter Six of Chandrakirti’s Entering the Middle Way with Commentary from the Eighth Karmapa Mikyo Dorje’s Kagyu Siddhas

Finished a remarkable book: „The Moon of Wisdom: Chapter Six of Chandrakirti’s Entering the Middle Way with Commentary from the Eighth Karmapa Mikyo Dorje’s Kagyu Siddhas“ During the 8th Karmapa Retreat 2014 in Karma Guen, Spain, I heard about this book during a amazing lecture about the life of the 8th Karmapa. This book explains the Buddha's ultimate teachings, how to gain confidence in them, and how to put them into practice in one's own life, to the great benefit of oneself and others. The commentary of the 8th Karmapa, who was one of the most erudite and prolific scholars of the Karma Kagyu lineage, contains the key to gaining the realization achieved by all the enlightened masters of the past, present and future. This book is not suitable for readers who are new to Buddhism, some good understanding and knowledge of Buddhist philosophy is necessary. It is a joy to read this book, even I only understood a small part of its vast amount of precious teachings, wisdom and treasures; it was still so enriching and I am sure I will read it again and again...
