We are pleased to make this text by Khenpo Tsultrim available. It was compiled and translated by Tony Duff who offered this book for free distribution and so we honor that and offer this PDF of the book also for free.

The full title of this 87 page book is "A partial Commentary to "The Miraculous Key which opens a door to The Treasury of Knowledge and Sums up the Reasonings in The Ocean of Text on Reasoning." The teaching was given to the Nalanda Translation Committee at Rocky Mountain Dharma Center in 1896.

This book is a commentary by Khenpo Tsultrim Rinpoche on Chapter 6 of Jamgon Kongtrul's A Treasury of Knowledge.

The first part of the book covers the Foundation Vehicle, particularly the Vaibashika and Sautrantika schools, the Mahayana Vehicle covering the Svatantra, Prasangika, and Shentong schools, and then the four kinds of Mind-only or Chittamatra schools.

The second part of the book (which begins on Page 33) covers over 40 parts the Valid Cognition school on how we determine if something is true or not.

Obviously, this is a very technical topic, but I must say Tony Duff divides it up into fairly sort paragraphs and often gives the Tibetan for the terms and carefully numbers each point and subpoint so it is very easy to read. Not only is the style very readable, but Khenpo Tsultrim Rinpoches commentary is extradentary lucid and easy to understand.
