From Ocean of Nectar

The Madhyamika system arose from the extremely vast and deep ocean of Nagarjuna’s wisdom. Frightened by this vastness and profundity, some beings have kept this excellent system at a great distance. In reality, however, Fundamental Wisdom is like a beautiful kumuta flower that grew from the ocean of Nagarjuna’s wisdom, but because its verses were not understood its petals remained folded keeping the nectar of emptiness within. Through the power of the sunlight of Chandrakirti’s wisdom these petals have now unfolded and the precious nectar of emptiness has flowed forth completely fulfilling the hopes of Madhyamika scholars such as Chandrakirti.

From Guide to the Middle Way

I bow down to that compassion for living beings
Who from first conceiving ‘I’ with respect to the self,
Then thinking, ‘This is mine’ and generating attachment for things,
Are without self-control like the spinning of a well.

Living beings are seen to be transient and empty of inherent existence
Like a moon in rippling water.
The mind of this Conquerors’ Son,
Governed by compassion to liberate living beings completely,

Thoroughly dedicated with Samantabhadra’s prayers
And always abiding in joy is called the ‘first’.
From then on because he has attained this
He is addressed by the very name ‘Bodhisattva’.
