Nagarjuna :

A set of thirteen B/W notecards drawn by Robert Beer that depict some important lineage masters from the Indo-Tibetan Buddhist traditions. These notecards come with envelopes, and are machine creased so they can be coloured with fine-line pens, crayons or paint before folding. Each card has a short biography of the lineage holder or guru depicted.

Nagarjuna (Tib. Lu-sgrub) was the great 1st or 2nd century Indian Buddhist master who founded the Madhyamaka or 'Middle Way' school of Philosophy. He is credited with receiving the Prajnaparamita-sutras, the texts on the 'Perfection of Wisdom', from the naga-serpent guardians of the underworld. Nagarjuna and Asanga are considered to be the two most exalted Indian Buddhist philosophers.
