The Root Verses of the Middle Way, Mūlamadhyamakakārikā

Nagarjuna’s Fundamental Verses on the Middle Way, the Mūlamadhyamakakārikā (MMK) is the foundational text of the Madhyamaka school of Mahāyāna Buddhism. It is considered to be the most profound exposition on the philosophy of emptiness, śūnyatā. Khenpo Jampa Dhonden teaches the root text and is translated into English. This is the first of two parts in which the entire 27 chapters will be taught.
