Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Part of a series of teachings on Aryadeva’s 400 Stanzas on the Middle Way given on an annual basis at Sravasti Abbey by Geshe Yeshe Thabkhe beginning in 2013.

  • Refuting that a sense consciousness directly perceives an object existing from its own side
  • Why awareness arising in dependence upon individual sense organs is not direct perception
  • Absurdity of positing that other parts of an object are seen because its visible form is seen
  • Refuting direct perception of just visible form existent under its own power
  • The visible form does not exist inherently but is imputed in dependence upon many parts
  • Even the smallest particles cannot exist inherently because they depend on their parts, otherwise they would be inapprehensible
  • Explaining why all dependently arising phenomena are mere names and terms
