Print Friendly, PDF & Email

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

  • Tsongkhapa’s presentation of the two truths changed the course of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy
  • It was necessary to have the most radical view of emptiness in order to make conventional things work
  • Conventional truths are not truths; they are falsities, but they do exist
  • Only ultimate truths exist the way they appear
  • The two truths are always together (one entity) but they are not the same thing
