DTB But could you add anything about this question?
"What is the connection between Paramartha and Nagarjuna if any ? "
GS If PARAMATHA refers to an historical figure, who brought Mind Only
to China, then there is no connection, because NAGARJUNA taught
MIDDLE WAY MAHAYANA, and he died several hundred years before Paramartha was
>From the post, it sounds as if Paramartha translated Mind Only sutras, and
not anything written by Nagarjuna.
The Mind Only school does not consider the PRAJNAPARAMITA literature to be
and so I doubt that Paramartha would have spent the time to translate it
