Four Illusions : Candrakirti's Advice to Travelers on the Bodhisattva Path
This book provides the first English translation of Candrakirti's commentary (ca. 6-7th century C.E.) on four illusions that prevent people from becoming Buddhas. Lang's translation captures the clarity of Candrakirti's arguments and the lively humour of the stories and examples he uses. Lang's introduction explores the range of Candrakirti's interests in religion, philosophy, psychology, politics, and erotic poetry.
