In the Buddha Maitreya’s Differentiating the Middle from the Extremes, the “middle” is the Middle-way and the two extremes are nihilism and eternalism. The present Buddha, of course, is the Shakyamuni Buddha, and Maitreya will be the next, future Buddha. Maitreya is known for giving the world the Five Treatises of Maitreya. These teachings are particularly precious because they represent the third turning of the wheel of dharma (with the Four Noble Truths teachings being the first turning and Nagarjuna’s vast teachings on emptiness being the second turning).

This text is particularly close to Thrangu Rinpoche because it expounds the Shentong view and Thrangu Rinpoche has long been a well-recognized master of this point of view. In these recordings Rinpoche comments upon this text in great detail and provides ample opportunity for questions and answers.

Teachings given in Crestone, Colorado, 2010 with David Karma Choephel translating. Consists of Nine talks on five DVD's.

Namo Buddha Publications has not published this teaching as a book but will be publishing these teachings in the future. Until now the very best way to "be there" at the teachings is to purchase the DVD. The DVD plays in DVD players and most computers and includes the Tibetan by Thrangu Rinpoche, the English translation, Questions and Answers.
