The Yuktiṣaṣṭikākārikā of Nāgārjuna

Autores: Fernando Tola y Carmen Dragonetti

In general terms, tradition considers that the Yuktiṣaṣṭikā was written by Nāgārjuna (IInd century A.D.), the founder of the Madhyamaka philosophical school of Mahāyāna Buddism. Candrakīrti, Prasannapadā, p. 3, 1. 15, ed. P. L. Vaidya (= p. 9, 1. 4, ed. L. de la Vallée Poussin), expressly attributes to Nāgarjuna a pāda that corresponds to a part of kārikā 19 of the Yuktiṣaṣṭikā, and in the same commentary, p. 3, I. 22, ed. P. L. Vaidya (= p. 10, I. 4, ed. L. de la Vallée Poussin) he quotes again the same pāda, attributing it to the ācārya, by which word we must understand Nāgārjuna.
