In this lesson, Jay Garfield leads us through the opening verses of Arya Nāgārjuna’s Mūlamadhyamakakārikā, introducing us to the intent and profundity of one of the most essential texts in Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism. His lucid commentary helps us understand Nāgārjuna’s discussion of the two truths, causality, dependent origination, the emptiness of emptiness, and motion.
