This is a translation of chapters 17-30 of Arya
Nagarjuna's Exegesis on the Great Perfection of Wisdom Sutra,
a free-standing section exclusively devoted to analyzing and explaining
the bodhisattva's six perfections. Nagarjuna sets forth numerous stories, analogies, and analyses
as he explores the deepest meaning of giving, moral virtue, patience,
vigor, meditative discipline, and transcendent wisdom.
