Snow Lion Publications, 2005 - Health & Fitness - 528 pages
"Nagarjuna, in his seminal text The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way, summarized the vast teachings of the Buddha and used logical reasoning to prove the validity of his words. Entering the Middle Way is Chandrakirti's explanation of Nagarjuna's work." "The Moon of Wisdom is a book that explains the Buddha's ultimate teachings, how to gain confidence in them, and how to put them into practice in one's own life, to the great benefit of oneself and others." "The Eighth Karmapa, Mikyo Dorje elaborates on the meaning of Chandrakirti's verses in a commentary that he proclaims to contain the key to gaining the realization achieved by all the enlightened masters of the past, present, and future."--BOOK JACKET.
