Overview

This is a very detailed commentary on the meaning of each stanza comprising Arya Nagarjuna's Bodhisambhara Shastra ("Treatise on the Provisions for Enlightenment") wherein Nagarjuna explains the essential prerequisites for achieving the enlightenment of a buddha and explains as well the most important practices to be undertaken by bodhisattvas.

This is the only extant commentary on one of the most important works of Arya Nagarjuna, the 2nd century Indian monk who figured most importantly in articulating the terrains of the Bodhisattva Path. This commentary was composed by the early Indian monk, Bhikshu Vasitva, sometime in the middle or first half of the first millennium.

Translation and clarifying notes are by the American monk, Bhikshu Dharmamitra.

This volume includes facing-page source text in both traditional and simplified scripts.
