Aryadeva's 4oo Stanzas

Postby Aemilius » Wed Feb 23, 2011 2:07 pm

Has anyone read Aryadeva's 400 Stanzas On the Middleway ? What do you think of the meditation topics that are there to arouse the spirit of renunciation ? They are very interesting and worth reading.
The book contains a commentary by Gyaltsab to each verse of Aryadeva. Gyaltsab often mentions the commentary of Candrakirti. This naturally raises an interest to know more about Chandrakirti's actual comments.
The book is a real contribution as it is, it certainly increases our knowledge of Madhyamika philosophers and of Madhyamika yogis.

The first four chapters of Candrakīrti's commentary have been translated as Four Illusions: Candrakīrti's Advice for Travelers on the Bodhisattva Path.

All the best,
