The Sun of Wisdom is Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso's extensive teaching on Nagarjuna's great masterpiece The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way. Nagarjuna's Fundamental Wisdom is the foundation of the reasoning and proof of the second turning of the wheel of dharma that all phenomena are empty. This book because of its complexity is studied up to a year in the Tibetan monastic colleges of all major lineages.
However, Khenpo Tsultrim, who taught with Thrangu Rinpoche at the first shedra at Rumtek under the supervison of the Sixteenth Karmapa, has distilled these Fundamental Verses down to 27 different chapters. Each chapter gives Nagarjuna's verses and then Khenpo Tsultrim in plain language with many examples which are aimed at the Buddhist practitioner, not the Buddhist scholar, explains these verses in great detail.
I personally can not think of any better book to explain the second turning reasoning of the second turning.--Clark Johnson
