Description Contents
 
The great Indian Buddhist master Nagarjuna (1st - 2nd century A.D.) wrote his celebrated poem Letter to a Friend as a letter of advice to a king with whom he was friendly. Despite its short length (only 123 verses), it is a monument in the Indian Buddhist tradition. It covers the whole Mahayana path with unusual clarity and memorable imagery, and it is for this reason that it is widely quoted by Tibet's great masters and scholars in the many commentaries they have written on the Buddhist path. The poem's condensed style and concentration of technical subjects, however, make it difficult to understand for the average reader, and much of it requires a certain amount of explanation if its message is to be conveyed fully.

Kyabje Kangyur Rinpoche's commentary, though not particularly long, provides such an explanation and at the same time furnishes a useful structural outline.

This book will appeal to any reader with interest in Mahayana Buddhism and the great classics of Indian Buddhist literature.
