David J. Kalupahana's Mulamadhyamakakarika of Nagarjuna: The Philosophy of the Middle Way might be of interest in that it is a translation of and a look at the Mulamadhyamakakarika from a stand point of the Pali Canon andthe Agamas. While Western Tibetan Buddhists tend to hate it because it does not conform to the usual Tibetan understanding of things (but we need to keep in mind that the Tibetans did not get everything correct, such as the Yogachara). While Kaluphahana's translation and discussion may not be perfect, it is a worthwhile read. Also, Kalupahana uses a very old Chinese commentary that approaches things a bit differently from the usual Tibetan manner.

Yeah, let's keep it real eh?

To clarify, my philosophical basis up to now has been the Mādhyamika, mostly via Nargajuna. I spoke at length with Sujin Boriharnwanaket in Thailand earlier this year and am intrigued in her stance and how it may differ from my view.

So be nice gentlemen and maybe we can get back on track...?
