He is credited, along with his disciple Aryadeva, with founding the Madhyamaka school of Mahayana Buddhism. He is renowned for his penetrating analysis of reality. In his Guide to the Bodhisattva Path (Bodhisambhara Shastra or Treatise on the Provisions for Enlightenment), Nagarjuna provides a clear and concise description of the essentials of the path to Buddhahood.
