This is Nagarjuna's Bodhisambhara Shastra ("Treatise on the Provisions for Enlightenment"). It describes the essential prerequisites for the complete enlightenment of a buddha. It is accompanied here by an abridged version of its only commentary, originally written by the early Indian Bhikshu Vasitva. Abridgement, notes, and translation by Bhikshu Dharmamitra. Includes facing-page source text for the stanzas in both traditional and simplified scripts.

Arya Nagarjuna's Treatise on the Provisions for Enlightenment, together with its commentary by the Indian Bhikshu Vasitva was translated into Chinese by the South Indian Tripitaka Master Dharmagupta in or around 609 CE in China's Sui Dynasty Capital. The two works are presented in interwoven format in the six-fascicle edition preserved in the Taisho compilation of the Chinese Buddhist canon. Neither the treatise nor the commentary are extant in either Sanskrit or Tibetan. As an important work by Nagarjuna, it is a Dharma jewel well worth bringing forth for the benefit of Western Buddhists. This work gathers together all of the beautiful essentials of Bodhisattva resolve, multi-lifetime vision, and altruistic practice into a relatively short, accessible, and comprehensive guide to the Bodhisattva Path.
