Madhyamaka books

Discuss and learn about the traditional Mahayana scriptures, without assuming that any one school ‘owns’ the only correct interpretation.

The Wisdom chapter in The Nectar of Manjushri's Speech.
Kye ma!
The river of continuity is marked by impermanence.
Ceaseless flowing of appearance.
Beautiful and repulsive.
The dance of life and death is a display of the vast expanse.
With gratitude the watcher and the watched pass through the barrier of duality.

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."

Here's two links for online study:

https://madhyamaka.com/ (the course is over but all the audio-files and texts are freely available still)

http://nitarthainstitute.org/ (this one I think is not for free)

Good luck!
