According to Don Handrick, who uses this translation in his teachings on the Uttaratantra
, this is a "rather wordy" translation of the first chapter of the Uttaratantraśāstra
, made so due to the heavy use of parenthetical information derived from various commentaries on the text that the translators use to explicate the root verses. The work is a draft compilation and is not for general distribution. Permission has been granted for use in FPMT (Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition) Basic Programs.
