The Pratītyasamutpādahṛdayakārikā and the Pratītyasamutpādahṛdayavyākhyāna of Śuddhamati

Autora: Carmen Dragonetti

TK. In the Buddhist Tibetan Canon, Bstan-ḥgyur, there are two small metrical treatises (Tōhuku 3836 and 4553; Catalogue and Index of the Tibetan Tripiṭaka, Peking Edition, 5236 and 5467) under the title Rten-ciṅ-ḥbrel-bar-ḥbyuṅ- baḥi-sñiṅ-poḥi tshig-leḥur-byas-pa. Both are basically identical and are translations of a Sanskrit work. The title of this work is indicated in both treatises after the Tibetan title: Pratītyasamutpādahṛdayakārikā. The colophons of both treatises attribute this work to Nāgārjuna. Both translations contain seven kārikās each; their basic theme is the pratītyasamutpāda doctrine.
