The Garland of Radiant Light: A commentary on Distinguishing the Middle from the Extremes (T. དབུས་དང་མཐའ་རྣམ་པར་འབྱེད་པའི་བསྟན་བཅོས་ཀྱི་འགྲེལ་བ་འོད་ཟེར་ཕྲེང་བ་, dbus dang mtha' rnam par 'byed pa'i bstan bcos kyi 'grel ba 'od zer phreng ba) is a commentary on the Madhyantavibhaga composed by Mipham Rinpoche, a scholar within the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism.

In this commentary, Mipham relies on earlier commentaries by the Indian scholars Vasubandhu and Sthiramati to explain the root verses of the Madhyantavibhaga.[1]
