Any comments on Mipam on Buddha-Nature: The Ground of the Nyingma Tradition by
Douglas S. Duckworth?

Thanks!

I've gotten some very good comments on Duckworth who as it turns out is on the Dharmachakra Translation Committee, so I've read some of his stuff before on that basis. He's also a practitioner and prof. at UVA. So two thumbs up for him so I'll probably get his book which is a version of his PhD thesis.

Thanks for the comments!

I have a copy of the book. I picked it up while I was studying Shantarakshita's Madhyamakalankara, had an interest in understanding Zhentong, and Mipam. I have yet to read it as my focus has shifted,
but I hope to pick it up one day. Duckworth made an appearance here in the Carolina's last year, but I missed the opportunity to attend.

Oh, BTW. It was recommended to me by a Jonang monk of exceptional intellect and wisdom who has posted on this forum a few times.
