The Letter to a Friend is a supremely clear account of how we can practise the threefold path of morality, meditation and wisdom. It was composed by the great philosopher Nagarjuna in the second century CE and has remained a classic text of Buddhism down to the present day. The Telescope of Wisdom, composed in 1987 by the Tibetan Buddhist scholar and yogin, Karma Thinley Rinpoche, is a detailed commentary on The Letter to a Friend, providing a precise and authoritative explanation of each of its 123 verses in the traditional Buddhist inter­linear commentarial style. This translation of Rinpoche’s commentary, together with Nagarjuna’s original text, supplies everything one needs to gain a detailed understanding of the authentic Buddhist path.
