Nāgārjuna's Treatise on the Ten Bodhisattva Grounds - Bilingual

Bilingual Chinese-English Edition


The Daśabhūmika Vibhāṣā

By Ārya Nāgārjuna (ca 2nd c.)

"Nāgārjuna’s Treatise on the Ten Bodhisattva Grounds" is Bhikshu Dharmamitra’s extensively annotated original translation of Ārya Nāgārjuna’s "Daśabhūmika Vibhāṣā" rendered from Tripiṭaka Master Kumārajīva’s circa 410 ce Sanskrit-to-Chinese translation. It consists of 35 chapters that explain the cultivation of the ten highest levels of bodhisattva practice leading to buddhahood, focusing almost exclusively on the first two of the ten bodhisattva grounds, "the Ground of Joyfulness" and "the Ground of Stainlessness."

This is a work which has never been translated into English before.
