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.
- A review of how to meditate on the emptiness of the self and the three levels of the selflessness of persons
- The four-point analysis refuting an inherently existent self and how it is expanded to the seven-point analysis
- How the direct realization of emptiness of one object extends to all other phenomena
