Thrangu Rinpoche with Khenpo Tsultrim have taught the four regents of the Kagyu school of Buddhism and in this book Khenpo Tsultrim presents the main school of Buddhist philosophy and their progressive development of philosophy of the true nature of phenomena.
In this book Khenpo Tsultrim Rinpoche discusses in detail Foundation School (Hinayana) approach to existence and view of emptiness. Then he discusses the second major school of Mind-only or Chitamatra school that all phenomena are mind. Next, he discusses the two Middle-way (Madhayanaka) schools and their different approach to the emptiness of phenomena. These are the Svatantrica and the Prasangika schools. Finally, he devotes a chapter to the Shentong approach to emptiness which involves luminous clarity and buddha nature which is most relevant to the meditator.
