Zhōnglùn/中論/Madhyamakaśāstra in English

Post by Coëmgenu » Sun Jan 28, 2018 3:03 am

A seminal Chinese recension of the Venerable Nāgārjuna's Madhyamaka masterwork. This recension is foundational and traditional for much of East Asian Madhyamak. Available for-free, translated in two volumes by B.C. Bocking

This may be a valuable resource to those interested in the Móhēzhǐguān study thread.
नस्वातो नापिपरतो नद्वाभ्यां नाप्यहेतुतः उत्पन्ना जातु विद्यन्ते भावाः क्वचन केचन
There absolutely are no things, nowhere and none, that arise anew, neither out of themselves, nor out of non-self, nor out of both, nor at random.
सर्वं तथ्यं न वा तथ्यं तथ्यं चातथ्यम् एव च नैवातथ्यं नैव तथ्यम् एतद् बुद्धानुशासनम्
All is so, or all is not so, both so and not so, neither so nor not so. This is the Buddha's teaching.

一切實非實亦實亦非實
非實非非實是名諸佛法

Woah, nice! I did not know this was available. Thanks
It is quite impossible to find the Buddha anywhere other than in one's own mind.
~Padmasambhava

Amid those who are self-constrained, the Stable One would not posit as categorically true or false
anything seen, heard, or sensed, clung to and considered truth by others.
Since they have already seen this dart to which people cling and adhere,
saying “I know, I see, it is just so,”
the Tathāgatas cling to nothing.
-Kalaka sutta
