Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The understanding of the nature of reality is the insight upon which the Buddha was able to achieve his own enlightenment. This vision of the sublime is the source of all that is enigmatic and paradoxical about Buddhism. In Verses from the Center, Stephen Batchelor explores the history of this concept and provides readers with translations of the most important poems ever written on the subject, the poems of 2nd century philosopher Nagarjuna.

Synopsis:

The author of the bestselling "Buddhism Without Beliefs" now explores the nature of reality and provides readers with translations of the most important poems ever written on the subject, the poems of 2nd century philosopher Nagarjuna.
