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.

Motivation from Je Tsongkhapa’s Three Principal Aspects of the Path

The essence of all the Conqueror’s teaching,
The Path extolled by the Exalted Conqueror’s sons,
And the point of entry for fortunate seekers of liberation,

  • Refuting the inherent existence of a visual object by examining if its color and shape are inherently one or different
  • Refutation by examining if a visual form and the four elements which are its causes are inherently one or different
  • Do the four elements and visible forms exist inherently? Are they inherently different and totally unrelated?
  • Refutation of Vaisheshika’s contention that a pot is visible since it possesses visibility
