Empty Words Buddhist Philosophy and Cross â€“ Cultural Interpratation
Author: Jay L. Garfield
Jay Garfields magisterial translation of Nagarjunas Mulamadhyamakakukarika (The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way) has established itself as the definitive edition of this foundational Indian Buddhist philosophical text. Nagarjuna is the founder-and his work the foundational text-of the Madhyamaka (or Middle Path) school of Mahayana, Buddhism, which predominates in Tibet, China, Mongolia, Korea, Vietnam, and Japan. In this book, a companion and supplement to his translation and commentary, Garfield presents fourteen of his essays on Nagarjuna, Madhyamaka, Yogacara and related themes in Buddhist philosophy.
