The Great Perfection of Wisdom Treatise (Fascicle: 1-5)

 The Great Perfection of Wisdom Treatise
(Sanskrit: Mahāprajñāpāramitā Upadeśa; 大智度論)

 

Composed by one of the most remarkable yet enigmatic figures of Buddhism, the legendary Nāgārjuna, this treatise on the Great Perfection of Wisdom Sūtra builds on the ancient traditions of early Buddhism, adds scholastic systematic analysis, and rallies together the sūtras and treatises of Mahāyāna Buddhism, to champion the Madhyamaka, “Middle Way” of the bodhisattva’s spiritual path to the omniscience of a fully awakened Buddha.
