Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Part of a series of teachings on Aryadeva’s 400 Stanzas on the Middle Way given on an annual basis by Geshe Yeshe Thabkhe from 2013-2017.

  • What is the difference between Tathagata’s and arya’s cognition of emptiness?
  • Refuting permanent functional phenomena in general
  • Since there are no independent functional phenomena, there are no permanent functional phenomena
  • Refuting that the permanent self exists because it experiences impermanent phenomena
  • Refuting that uncompounded phenomena such as space, individual analytical cessations, and non-analytical cessations are permanent and substantially existent
  • Refuting permanent omnipresent space
  • Time is impermanent and exists only by mental imputation
  • Anything accepted as a cause should be accepted as an effect
  • Any functional phenomenon which changes, e.g. time, is not permanent
  • Since cause and effect always have congruent characteristics, effect produced by an impermanent cause must be impermanent
