The teachings on Chapter 8 of Aryadeva’s 400 Stanzas on the Middle Way show the methods of training the student’s mindstream to make it receptive to a spiritual path.
- Why we need to learn how cyclic existence comes into existence, and not just study emptiness
- Commentary on the three misconceptions of how phenomena come into existence
- How emptiness does not mean non-existence, and how the view of dependent arising prevents the misconception of nihilism
