Fundamentals of the Middle Way by Nagarjuna
Ask a Question
PDF [was: +$0.00 now is: Free]
The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way (Skt. mula-madhamaka-karika) is Nagarjuna's famous book on establishing that phenomena are empty. This book is translation of translation by Jay Garfield who also provides commentary.
This is a translation of the Tibetan text of M lamadhyamakak rik . It is perhaps an odd idea to translate a Tibetan translation of a Sanskrit text and to retranslate a text of which there are four extant English versions. My reasons for doing so are these: First, I am not satisfied with any of the other English versions. Every translation, this one included, of any text embodies an interpretation, and my interpretation differs in various respects from those of my predecessors in this endeavor. This is to be expected.
