Book Discussion: Teachings on the Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way

Sun of Wisdom: Teachings on the Noble Nagarjuna’s Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way

 Written by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche

Book discussion group, facilitated by Nick Vail
7-8 p.m. (Pacific) Tuesdays, Jan. 12 – March 23

The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way is one of the most important works of Nagarjuna. In his pioneering commentary, he presents a subtle analysis of the Buddha’s teachings on Madhyamika or the Middle Way.

Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche uses Nagarjuna’s root text and Lama Mipham’s commentary in his book, The Sun Of Wisdom, to illuminate the most important verses from each chapter. 

In this weekly series, Nick Vail will help the group explore the meaning of these profound teachings and how to put them into practice in our modern world.
