This is the first complete explanation in English of Chandrakirti's Guide to the Middle Way, a classic Mahayana scripture, which to this day is regarded as the principal presentation of Buddha's profound view of emptiness, the ultimate nature of reality. With a new translation and verse-by-verse commentary, the author reveals this profound meaning to the West with utmost clarity, and guides us along the stages of the Bodhisattva path to full enlightenment. The book is an indispensable guide for the serious practitioner of Mahayana Buddhism.
