Let a great Tibetan scholar guide you through one of Nagarjuna's masterworks. InPractical Ethics and Profound EmptinessKhensur Jampa Tegchok walks us carefully through a classic of Indian Buddhist philosophy, explaining the implications of its philosophical arguments and grounding its advice in a recognizable day-to-day world. InPrecious Garland, the source text for this commentary, Nagarjuna advises his patron king on how best to take advantage of human life to secure a happy rebirth in the next life while making progress toward the goal of enlightenment. Known primarily for his incisive presentation of emptiness, here Nagarjuna shows his wise understanding of how to navigate the intricacies of worldly life to balance everyday needs with spiritual practice. Loaded with equal measures of penetrating explanations of the highest reality and inspiring encouragement towards the bodhisattva practices,Practical Ethics and Profound Emptinessmakes the case for living a thoughtful, morally upright life in the world to achieve immediate and ultimate spiritual goals.
