It is so important for one who takes up the onerous job of translating a text like this one of Nagarjuna to be not just familiar with the teachings but see the text as a one that provides insights to a seeker For that one must be a seeker oneself Only then can the words speak to us Nagarjuna s Mulamadhhyamakakarika is one of the defining books of philosophy Not just for Buddhism but for any seeker of truth in general It is so fascinating that someone could be so seized of truth and nothing but the truth and find so much to write about Mark and Shoryu have done a remarkable job in sticking to one thing What was said in sanskrit say the same in English Brilliant book Gives a direct insight into Nagarjuna s way of seeing Which in turn is supposed to tell us about what Buddha spoke No doubt this book inspired Gaudapada so much that he used uite a bit of these ways of arguments in his Karika on Mandukya Once again goes to show how Buddha and Shankara said the same thing The threshold they stood on appeared different This book will remain a boon in the hands of not just many Buddhists but so many who are eager to hit the truth Who care about true perception

The translators do an excellent job of presenting the Mulamadhyamakakarika in what could be close to its original context Eschewing their own 21st century commentary the translators instead summarize and present explanations of the verses from ancient Indian commentators I very much enjoyed this approach especially because the translators could have easily doubled or tripled the length of this text to include all sorts of comparative philosophical argumentation I believe they did the right thing by letting Nagarjuna s philosophical confrontation with the Abhidharma schools speak for itself That being said I couldn t help but notice numerous possible connections between Nagarjuna s critiue of metaphysics that have parallels in modern Western philosophy in Kant and Hegel for example I m very much interested in those connections as well Beyond all that I found Nagarjuna s critiues of Abhidharma metaphysics very stimulating I had only read a few Buddhist texts and a few modern Western interpretations of Buddhism before engaging with this one and I am very glad I read it Highly recommended to anyone interested in religionphilosophy
