The Ornament of Clear Realization summarizes the vast Prajnaparamita text of 100,000 verses. This Prajnaparamita text along with its shorter versions of 25,000 and 8,000 verses came from the great Tantric practitioner Nagarjuna who lived in the first century A.D. The ornament comprises 80 distinct points and these points are memorized in Tibetan monastic colleges and are an integral part of a Buddhist education. For this reasons, each of these points and their Tibetan names have been included in the extensive outline of this book. The present book is a Commentary by Ven Thrangu Rinpoche Geshe Lharampa on the Prajnaparamita of the Maitreya Buddha.
