Shantarakshita, author of the Madhyamakalankara

The Ornament of the Middle Way (Skt. Madhyamakālaṃkāra; Tib. དབུ་མ་རྒྱན་, Uma Gyen, Wyl. dbu ma rgyan) was written by Shantarakshita, the great Indian scholar who assisted Guru Padmasambhava in introducing Buddhism to Tibet and founding the famous monastery of Samyé. There is a famous commentary by Mipham Rinpoche, his most comprehensive work on Madhyamika, which brilliantly sets out the unique Nyingma view bringing together themes from the Middle Way and the Mind Only schools.

It was translated from Sanskrit into Tibetan by Yeshe De under the guidance of acharya Shilendrabodhi. Kamalashila's Commentary on Difficult Points was also translated by Yeshe De, under the guidance of Surendrabodhi and Prajñāvarman.
