Description
 
Precious Garland: Buddhist Approach to Life, Polity and Liberation is a book of advice composed by the renowned Buddhist monk philosopher Arya Nagarjuna for his royal friend King Satakarni of the Indian Satavahana dynasty in circa, first century AD. Strung in 500 quatrains, the book is presented in five chapters, each shedding light on concepts and realities such as life, death, beauty, love, power, and virtue. It also provides deep philosophical insight into relevant Buddhist views of Karmic causality, impermanence, emptiness, relativity or interdependence, and Nirvana. More importantly, it delineates Nagarjuna's quintessential Madhyamaka philosophy, which remained a central philosophy theme in various Buddhist traditions for centuries. The book is intended at helping readers develop a healthy outlook to life, spirituality and practice. Carry a universal message, the book, originally composed for a king, will serve as an effective advice manual for those in responsible positions of power and also those bound by a sense of civic duty. Set in bilingual format, the book contains a new Tibetan rendition of the text drawn primarily from its five major editions -- Derge, Chone, Narthang, Peking and Zhol -- with a lightly annotated English translation that opts literally over readability.
