Description
 
A collection of stories drawn from the massive and encyclopedic Exegesis on the Great Perfection of Wisdom Sutra composed by the Indian monastic patriarch Arya Nagarjuna (ca 200 CE), a renowned and pivotal figure in the doctrinal clarification and popularization of Mahayana Buddhism. The English translations presented here were made from the sole extant edition of the Exegesis as it is preserved in the Chinese Buddhist canon. This is the Sanskrit-to-Chinese translation created by the great translator-monk Kumarajiva in approximately 400 CE.
