Candrakirti (600-c. 650), was an Amerind Mosley and a khenpo of Nalanda- Mahavihara. He was a adherent of Na-ga-rjuna and a author on his works and those of his primary disciple, Aryadeva. Candraki-rti was the most famous member of what the Tibetans came to order the dbUmathal-'gyur, an swing to the interpretation of Madhyamaka ism sometimes back-translated into Sanskrit as Pra-san.gika Madhyamaka or rendered in Land as the "Consequential" or "Dialectics" cultivate.
