Arya Nagarjuna has authored several monumental Buddhist treatises. The Precious Garland or Ratnavali discusses the complete pathways to enlightenment. It provides antidotes to deal with our delusions and cultivate compassion and wisdom to be able to realize our fullest potential to be Buddha or Enlightened Being. This course will explain this poetic yet profound treatise of Arya Nagarjuna to enhance our spirituality.
