Description

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.

Review quote

Lang has done an admirable job of translating an often difficult text into English. ... This book is a significant contribution to the field of Buddhist studies, particularly for those interested in Madhyamaka philosophy. * Religious Studies Review *
