An essential part of the study and practice in the great Indian Buddhist monastic univ ersities, these teachings were later incorporated into the Tibetan monastic programs which modeled their curricula on their Indian predecessors. This volume contains a translation of a fundamental work of Nagarjuna, along with a new commen t a r y o n i t by Geshe Sonam Rinchen which, while based on traditional sources, was created expressly for the contemporary English reader. In addition, David Komito summarizes those basic Buddhist doctrines on perception and the creation of con ce pt s wh i ch h a ve traditionally served as the backrop for Nagarjuna's teachings about how people consistently misperceive and misunderstand the nature of the reality in which they live and the means through which they experience it. This boo k w ill b e o f int ere st to practitioners and scholars of Buddhism as well as psychologists who seek a deeper understanding of Buddhist psychology and epistemology."
