Book Description
Publisher’s Note

We are happy to bring out this revised edition of The Drop of Nourishment for People by the great philosopher and metaphysician Nagarjuna and its commentary The Jewel Ornament, both taken from the Mongolian academician Damdinsureng’s monumental :The Hundred Best Works of Mongolian Literature”.

Translated from the Mongolian by the professional linguist Dr. Stanley Frye, the Library of Tibetan Works & Archives is happy to publish it in the series of translations from Mongolian beginning with Sutra of the Wise and the Foolish.

We hope all the readers of Nagarjuna and Buddhism will benefit from it.


Back of The Book

A Drop of Nourishment for People by Nagarjuna and its commentary The Jewel Ornament provides a very fascinating reading on the meaning of compassion, virtuous deeds and the law of Karma in the theory and practice of Buddhist philosophy. Through numerous fables and legends that are at once delightful and frightening, the text and its commentary reveals the impermanent nature of Samsara and prompts the reader towards the Buddhist ideals of Nirvana. Not only adults but children will also enjoy and benefit by reading A Drop of Nourishment and especially its commentary The Jewel Ornament which delves into the world of fables, fairy tales and legends to bring home the Buddhist message of love, compassion and kindliness to all sentient beings.
