Would anyone have any advice on where to find a good Russian translation of Nagarjuna's book? (I've tried myself, but Russian is no longer my first language!)

  • I'm not sure whether if there's a Russian translation of the book. You can find the english version on Amazon tho.

    Thanks, I have a few copies myself (Garfield, my aim is to supplant the Gideon bible tradition by dumping these and the Tao Te Ching onto unexpecting hotel clients!) - wanted to show it to my dad, who doesn't speak English. May 12, 2017 at 18:04

    That's going to be hard. Hopefully someone has the Russian translation. Good luck :D

    Unfortunately I can't assist on this one. Just wondering if you had any luck so far? Do you know of any russian translators that might be able to translate it for you?

Androsov has translated and commented it. I'm not sure if his translation is very good - he might have some strange terminology sometimes - but he is one of the leading Russian scholars in that field. See "Nagarjuna's teaching on Middle Way" - Андросов В.П. Учение Нагарджуны о Срединности... М., 2006

Androsov, page 2

Another interesting text on the topic might be Chandrakirti's "Introduction to Madhyamaka":
