Nāgārjuna(b. ca. 2nd century - )
Nāgārjuna was the c. 2nd century founder of the Madhyamaka school of Buddhist philosophy. He is eulogized in the Tibetan tradition as one of the group of great Indian scholars known as the Six Ornaments, though he is equally renown in the Chinese and other East Asian Buddhist traditions. He was the first major Mahāyāna philosopher and his Mūlamadhyamakakārikā became the standard exposition for the Mahāyāna view of emptiness (śūnyatā) as presented in the Prajñāpāramitā Sūtras.
