Description

From the Jacket:

Nagarjuns's Letter to King Gautamiputra is a concise and comprehensive explanation of the fundamentals of the Buddha's teaching and of the Buddhist path to liberation. Written by the renowned sage Nagarjuna for his friend and patron Gautamiputra the then King of Andhra in the South of India, the work which contains one hundred and twentythree verses achieved great popularity first in India and then in Tibet. Though the Sanskrit original of the work is lost, the present English translation has been made from the Tibetan version preserved in the Tibetan collection. Explanatory notes based on three authoritative Tibetan commentaries have been added to the text. The Tibetan text of the verses of Nagarjuna's letter is also included to assist students and scholars who wish to consult the Tibetan version.

Excerpts from Reviews:

"…the work…serves as a concise and comprehensive manual of instruction in the doctrine and practice of Buddhist religion and philosophy.
The Original title 'Suhrllekha' denotes the 'the Letter of a Friend' rendered in the Preface. The translators have, however, amplified it specifically into 'Nagarjuna's Letter to King Gautamiputra'. The translators have rendered the Tibetan verses into English in a lucid style, presenting them within the framework of a continuous outline serving as a guideline for grasping the scheme of the manual…
…The translation is also supplemented by two Appendixes - one giving the Tibetan version of the work and the other giving a glossary of some English terms with their Tibetan and Sanskrit equivalents. The illustrations and the Index enrich the publication, which provides a lucid translation of a manual for the readers interested in Buddhist religion and philosophy." - H.G. SHASTRI

"… is a valuable addition to the literature on Buddhism…. It is interesting as a work of scholarship and provides an insight into Buddhism and Buddhist ethics. " - A.M. GHOSE

"…The Present work contains not only the English translation of the Tibetan version but also elaborates notes based on Tibetan commentaries together with the original Tibetan text in calligraphy. A very useful addition to the knowledge of Mahayana Buddhism." - S.S.S

"…The present edition is a compilation of translations but not directly from the original text. It is based on three Tibetan commentaries on the text ably supplemented by a thorough discussion. The explanatory notes which follow the verses in English make the text more precise and the philosophy of Nagarjuna clearer and simpler. " - SAVITRI SUBRAHMANYAM

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
