Tibetan commentaries on the MMK

Postby Michael_Dorfman » Mon Jun 03, 2013 12:37 pm

Can anyone help me compile a list of Tibetan commentaries on Nāgārjuna's Mūlamadhyamakakārikā?

(I'm thinking primarily of texts composed in Tibetan, not translations from the Sanskrit.)

Only know English translations... here are two:

Ocean of Reasoning by Je Tsongkhapa and Ornament of Reason by Mabja bodhisattva
One should refrain from biased judgments and doubting in fathoming the Buddha and the Dharma of the Buddhas. Even though a dharma may be extremely difficult to believe, one should nonetheless maintain faith in it. Nagarjuna

Ju Mipham and Khenpo Shenga wrote commentaries on it as well.

I'm happy that helped. I found these mostly by searching tbrc.org and pulled out the Tibetan commentaries. I also used AIBS (http://www.aibs.columbia.edu).
