Madhyamika and Yogacara: A Study of Mahayana Philosophies
Nagao invariably focuses on the core of Mahayana Buddhism--the path of the Bodhisattva, the doctrine of sunyata, and the system of Trisvabhava are explained.
Important technical terms used in the Mahayana textual tradition, whose exact understanding is imperative for the study of Mahayana Buddhism, are skillfully presented, making the book indispensable to scholars of Buddhist studies.
