Ocean of Nectar: Wisdom and Compassion in Mahayana Buddhism
"Ocean of Nectar" is the first complete commentary in English to Chandrakirti's classic "Guide to the Middle Way," one of the most important scriptures in Mahayana Buddhism and regarded to this day as the principal text on emptiness, the ultimate nature of reality. In this long-awaited major work Geshe Kelsang provides an entirely new translation of Chandrakirti's verse masterpiece and explains with outstanding clarity the philosophical reasoning establishing Buddha's most profound view of the middle way. In the course of the book he also charts the progress of a Mahayana practitioner from the initial cultivation of compassion through to the attainment of full enlightenment, providing an indispensable guide for the serious student of Mahayana Buddhism.
