A uniue insider's account of day to day life inside a Tibetan monastery The Sound of Two Hands Clapping reveals to Western audiences the fascinating details of monastic education Georges B J Dreyfus the first Westerner to complete the famous Ge luk curriculum and achieve the distinguished title of geshe weaves together elouent and moving autobiographical reflections with a historical overview of Tibetan Buddhism and insights into its teaching George BJ Dreyfus has written a wonderfully informative account of Tibetan monastic education that ends on something of a flat note After conceding that scholasticism the study of sacred texts leads to “believing what you are supposed to despite your best efforts to uestion” Dreyfus asserts in his closing paragraph that it nevertheless results as well in “an ability without which deeper understanding is impossible” Nothing in his account appears to lead such a conclusion On the contrary one of his Tibetan teachers notes that while Dreyfus understands the words he doesn’t grasp the meaning “We could even defeat in debate a person who had realized emptiness” His teacher knows that realization is available even to those without this level of scholastic ability If you ever thought you wanted to study at a Tibetan monastery read this book You might change your mind
