Mulamadhyamakakarika of Nagarjuna: The Philosophy of the Middle Way

Quantity:

This is a completely new translation of Nagarjuna`s major work the Mulamadhyamakakarika, accompanied by a detailed annotation of each of the verses. The annotation identifies the metaphysical theories of the scholastics criticized by Nagarjuna, and traces the source material and the arguments utilized in his refutation back to the early discourses of the Buddha. 
 
The Introduction presents a completely new hypothesis about the nature of treatise. The work is a grand commentary on the Buddha's "Discourse to Katyayana" (Kaccayanaqotta-sutta). The concluding part of the Introduction compares the teaching of the Buddha and Nagarjuna in regard to epistemology, ontology, ethics and philosophy of language indicating how the latter was making a determined attempt to reconstruct the Buddha's teachings in a very faithful manner, avoiding the substantialist metaphysics of the scholastics. 
 
The book shows that Nagarjuna`s ideas are neither original nor are they an advancement from the early Buddhist period. Nagarjuna is not a Mahayanist.

About the Author:

David Kalupahana is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Hawaii.

Vedic Society Book Review(What's this?)
Review of Mulamadhyamakakarika of Nagarjuna: The Philosophy of the Middle Way
".....most significant is the manner in which the author proceeded to examine the subtle and complex metaphysical issues that blinded the Sarvastivadins and the Sautrantikas in a background in which speculative philosophy had reached a high watermark, both among the Buddhists and the traditional Indian philosophers. .....probed into almost every aspect of their speculations, whether relating to epistemology, ontology, moral philosophy, or philosophy of language. He linked disjointed concepts and dissolved the hardened and the solidified." -M.P. Pandit, The Vedanta Kesari, Vol.79, June 1992.

TESTIMONIALS

Your website is the best I have seen and reflects well the intentions behind your seva. (to bring out the knowledge of ancient realized scriptures - the Ved) Tamil Nadu is a Divine place. I realize the difficult challenges you must be facing there but progress forward with the goal to serve will make things turn out just right. Renounce the fruit of labor totally if possible - its tough on the ego but as you, unbounded bliss awaits immediately. Very difficult to find true seva working souls, everybody wants something. I feel your genuie will to serve and I salute you in greeting - namaste. May God provide for you all there and shower His/Her eternal joy and abundance to support you and guide you. Thank you for your heart warming email. I appreciate the service....
