Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Part of a series of teachings given from March 6-11, 2010, at Sravasti Abbey.

  • Tsongkhapa’s interpretation of Chandrakirti
  • Ultimate cessation (nirvana) as being a conventional truth and both an object and an attribute
  • Debate between Tsongkhapa and Bhavaviveka, why Bhavaviveka was wrong when accusing Tsongkhapa of being a Svatantrika and when accusing Chandrakirti of being a nihilist
  • The basis of designation and conventional agreement
  • What the Svatantrikas mean when they say that there’s got to be something on the side of the mind, it’s not 100% on the side of the object
  • Why cessations aren’t produced
  • How the basis of designation can be established by unimpaired senses
