Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The teachings on Chapter 13 of Aryadeva’s Four Hundred Stanzas on the Middle Way refute the inherent existence of senses and objects.

  • Analyzing how an object is perceived and what perceives it
  • Refuting an inherently existent visual consciousness as the one that is looking at an object
  • Refuting an inherently existent eye organ as the perceiver
  • Refuting the combination of the three—eye, consciousness and object—as the instrument of looking at form
  • Refuting inherent existence by examining auditory perception
