Description:

The bestselling author of Buddhism Without Beliefs turns his attention to the Buddha's central insight into the nature of reality, arguably the most enigmatic and intriguing vision in all of human history.

The publication of Buddhism Without Beliefs brought to the fore one of the world's most sensitive and intelligent writers on Buddhism. At the center of the tradition is the enigmatic vision of the sublime upon which the Buddha was to achieve his own enlightenment. This concept of the true nature of reality is one of the most difficult, intriguing, and paradoxical expressions of human thought.

Stephen Batchelor brings his unique qualifications as scholar, teacher, translator, and former monk to the exploration of this vision. He also provides the reader with translations of the most important poems ever written on the subject: those of the second-century philosopher-monk, Nagarjuna. This is the first time these poems have been translated into English. Verses from the Center promises to become a seminal contribution to the understanding of Buddhism as well as a book to live by.
