PSL Shedra, Year Eleven: Nagarjuna’s Letter to a Friend

August 24, 2013 - August 30, 2013

Nagarjuna’s Letter to a FriendNagarjuna’s poetic presentation of the fundamental teachings of the Great Vehicle, or Mahayana‰ÛÓwhose followers, driven by compassion, strive to attain buddhahood for the sake of all beings‰ÛÓis remarkable for its concise style and memorable imagery, making it one of the most widely quoted sources in other commentaries on the Mahayana path.
The great Indian Buddhist master Nagarjuna (first‰ÛÒsecond century A.D.) wrote his celebrated poem “Letter to a Friend” as a gift of advice to a South Indian king, and it has since become a monument in the Indian shastra tradition.
Despite its short length (only 123 verses), it covers the whole Mahayana path, combining a practical approach to daily conduct with a theoretical exposition of the different stages leading to enlightenment.
Nagarjuna’s Letter to Friend is being offered at a discounted price on the online Chiso Store: https://www.padmasambhava.org/cart/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=690&osCsid=332af35dab8df2daf83da4fb41193b91
