MULA-MADHYAMAKA-KARIKA
Nagarjuna brought to the world given by Buddha and according to the legend stored in the world of Nagas the doctrine of the Transcendent Excellent Knowing. He expressed his deep understanding of the essence of phenomena and the teaching of the Middle Way in the Mulamadhyamakakarika text, which is a chapter-by-chapter explanation of the foundation of the Middle Way.

In this text, Nagarjuna disputes the misinterpretation of the Buddha's words. He polemicizes with non-Buddhist ideology concerning perceived reality and its nature, destroying misconceptions and erroneous views.
HISTORY OF THE TEACHING OF THE MIDDLE WAY
The Shakyamuni Buddha achieved awakening more than 2500 years ago. He completely freed himself from deep delusions about the nature of phenomena and opened the way to liberation for everybody. The state of enlightenment which he attained is free from the slightest signs of confusion, depression, hatred, aggression and painful attachment. On the contrary, it is filled with love and compassion, devoid of selfish intentions, combines tranquillity, openness and clarity.

When the Buddha attained enlightenment, he proclaimed the following:

«I have found the nectar of Dharma that is deep, flawless, radiant and unconditional. But if I explain it, nobody will understand so I will remain in silence in the forest».

He was requested to teach the path to liberation, so he gave 84000 teachings for all beings with all their capacities and aptitudes. After him, the saints appeared, and they upheld, explained and spread these teachings.
There is the following prophecy of Shakyamuni Buddha in «Manjushrimulatantra»:

«After I, Buddha, leave, four hundred years will pass, and then a monk called Naga will appear. He will devote himself to the Dharma and uphold it. He will reach the stage of Perfect Bliss and will live for six hundred years».

Nagarjuna brought to the world given by Buddha and according to the legend stored in the world of Nagas the doctrine of the Transcendent Excellent Knowing.

In this text, Nagarjuna disputes the misinterpretation of the Buddha's words. He polemicizes with non-Buddhist ideology concerning perceived reality and its nature, destroying misconceptions and erroneous views.

Verse 14 in chapter 24 of Mulamadhyamakakarika is one of Nagarjuna's most famous saying about emptiness and interdependent origination.
