Buddhapalita (ca. 470–540) was born in South India. At an early age he received ordination, entered formal study, and became learned in Buddhist scriptures. In due course, he began to read the works of Nagarjuna under the guidance of Samgharakshita, gaining insight into their meaning through intense meditation. Later he taught at Dantapuri Monastery and while there composed many commentaries to the works of Nagarjuna, Aryadeva, Shura, and so on. Buddhapalita’s only extant work is his commentary to Nagarjuna’s Mulamadhyamakakarika called Buddhapalitamulamadhyamakavrtti.
