Tree of Wisdom – (Skt. Prajna Danda, Wyl. sherab dongbu), a shastra written by Nagarjuna.

Tree of Wisdom is the commentary of manners or moral maxim having 260 verses. The original text was in Sanskrit; it was translated into Chhoekay (classical language) in the 11 century AD and included in the Tenjur (commentarial canon). It is fortunate that the Chhoekay version has been incorporated in the Tenjur because the original text in Sanskrit is no longer available and it is not known how the text was lost.
