The teachings on Chapter 10 of Aryadeva’s 400 Stanzas on the Middle Way refute truly existent phenomena as well as the self.
- A permanent self or creator could not act as a cause to make something happen
- Seeing that things have a changing continuum avoids the extremes of permanence and annihilation
- How to use an awareness of impermanence to live a meaningful life.
