In this text Karmapa Mikyo Dorje, one of the greatest scholars in the line of Karmapas, offers a profound defence of the Great Madhyamaka system. His work falls into five principal points: (1) the reasoning that establishes the reality of buddha-nature, (2) the essence of buddha-nature, (3) the path that delivers buddha-nature from the stains, (4) showing through examples how the buddha-nature is temporarily obscured by stains, and (5) outlining the necessity for teaching the doctrine of buddha-nature.
