C10. Nagarjuna: Philosophy of the Middle Way - on MP3 (Nonmember price)
Taught by Steve Hagen
Based on Nagarjuna's Verses on the Middle Way (Mulamadhyamakakarika), this series carefully examines the emptiness of all phenomena and demolishes all of our common concepts of time, space, motion, identity, location, cause and effect, conditionality, sense, and self. This radical and profound, yet accessible work points directly to the truth evident in what we see and experience. His teachings form the foundation not only for Zen, but for all the Mahayana schools. All of Mahayana literature is most completely elucidated by his works. Students are led through a verse-by-verse examination of this foundational Buddhist writing.
