John Brady will unpack some of the most profound and beautiful verses from the text called WISDOM by Nagarjuna. Arya Nagarjuna lived in the second century C.E. and is regarded as the founder of the Madhyamaka school of Mahayana Buddhism. Some even say he was a second Buddha! Some of his most important work were the Mulamadhyamaka-karika (‘Fundamental Verses on the Middle Way’), the Yuktisastika (‘Sixty Verses on Reasoning’), and the Shunyatasaptati (‘Seventy Verses on Emptiness’).
John Brady is one of those special beings who has had the opportunity to study the open and higher teachings of buddhism and complete a three year solo silent meditation retreat.
