Most widely held works by Nāgārjuna
The philosophy of the middle way Mūlamadhyamakakārikā by Nāgārjuna( )
15 editions published between 1986 and 2006 in English and Sanskrit and held by 1,512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The fundamental wisdom of the middle way Nāgārjuna's Mūlamadhyamakakārikā by Nāgārjuna( )
9 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 1,136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is not a standard translation of Mulamadhyamakakarika. Translator Nishijima Roshi believes that the original translation from Chinese into Sanskrit by the Ven. Kumarajiva (circa 400 C.E.) was faulty and that Kumarajiva's interpretation has influenced every other translation since. Avoiding reference to any other translations or commentaries, Nishijima Roshi has translated the entire text anew. This edition is, therefore, like no other. An expert in the philosophical works of Dogen Zenji (1200-1254 CE), Nishijima says in his introduction, "My own thoughts regarding Buddhism rely solely upon what Master Dogen wrote about the philosophy. So when reading the Mulamadhyamakakarika it is impossible for me not to be influenced by Master Dogen's Buddhist ideas." Thus this book is heavily and unabashedly influenced by the work of Master Dogen. Working with Brad Warner, Nishijima has produced a highly readable and eminently practical translation and commentary intended to be most useful to those engaged in meditation practice. The Mulamadhyamakakarika (MMK) was written by Master Nagarjuna, an Indian Buddhist philosopher of the second century. Mahayana Buddhism had arrived at its golden age and Nagarjuna was considered its highest authority. The MMK is revered as the most conclusive of his several Buddhist works. Its extraordinarily precise and simple expression suggests that it was written when Master Nagarjuna was mature in his Buddhist practice and research."--Publisher's website

Verses from the center : a Buddhist vision of the sublime by Nāgārjuna( Book )
4 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The understanding of the nature of reality is the insight upon which the Buddha was able to achieve his own enlightenment. This vision of the sublime is the source of all that is enigmatic and paradoxical about Buddhism. In Verses from the Center, Stephen Batchelor explores the history of this concept and provides readers with translations of the most important poems ever written on the subject, the poems of 2nd century philosopher Nagarjuna

The dispeller of disputes : Nāgārjuna's Vigrahavyāvartanī by Nāgārjuna( Book )
9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Nagarjuna's Vigrahavyavartani is an essential work of Madhyamaka Buddhist philosophical literature. Written in an accessible question-and-answer style, it contains Nagarjuna's replies to criticisms of his philosophy of the "Middle Way." The Vigrahavyavartani has been widely cited both in canonical literature and in recent scholarship; it has remained a central text in India, Tibet, China, and Japan, and has attracted the interest of greater and greater numbers of Western readers. In The Dispeller of Disputes, Jan Westerhoff offers a clear new translation of the Vigrahavyavartani, taking current philological research and all available editions into account, and adding his own insightful philosophical commentary on the text. Crucial manuscript material has been discovered since the earlier translations were written, and Westerhoff draws on this material to produce a study reflecting the most up-to-date research on this text. In his nuanced and incisive commentary, he explains Nagarjuna's arguments, grounds them in historical and textual scholarship, and explicitly connects them to contemporary philosophical concerns."--Publisher's website

"Nagarjuna probably lived in the second century ce in India, and he was one of the most influential Buddhist thinkers. He developed his philosophy in the tradition of the Prajnaparamita Sutras, which teach that things are 'empty' like an illusion." "The work which is here presented, is a translation of Nagarjuna's most famous work, the Mulamadhyamaka Karikas. Here the philosopher tries to show that reality cannot be reduced to conceptual structures, since thought and conceptualization are the work of mental presentation and are therefore fantasy. Reality, on the contrary, is experienced, and for that very reason it cannot be thought." "This idea had a tremendous impact on the history of Buddhist thought in Central and East Asia. Nagarjuna shows the absurdity of concepts like substance, causality, and the idea of movement, at least in so far as these terms are considered as references to a reality as it exists in itself. Like the German philosopher Immanuel Kant, he stresses the limits of human understanding and in so doing creates a space for a freedom of experience. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
