Nagarjuna's Tribute to Buddha

Kunsang Dolma interviewed Khenpo Tsultrim, a resident teacher of Drikhung Kagyue Buddhist center in Maryland, on Nagarjuna's teachings on the concept of "Dependent origination." Khenpo Tsultrim says master Nagarjuna pays homage to the Buddha not just for his principles of love and compassion, but for his philosophical understanding of “dependent origination" which is something unique from other religious traditions. Nagarjuna was a great Buddhist scholar of the ancient Indian University of Nalanda.
