Das zentrale Motiv hinter Nāgārjunas Lehrtätigkeit, die den Grundstein für die „Schule des Mittleren Weges“ (Mādhyamaka) legte und der buddhistischen Philosophie zahlreiche Werke hinterließ, war die Wiederherstellung der Lehre Buddhas, deren Kerngedanke Nāgārjuna zufolge durch die ausufernde Schullehre in einigen Schulen des Hīnayāna Gefahr lief, aus dem Blickpunkt zu geraten.

What is Vipassana Meditation

Vipassana means "to see things as they really are"; it is a logical process of mental purification through self-observation.
