Middle Way Teachings by Geshe Namdak

 "Appearance and Reality" by Geshe NamdakHow is emptiness realized and what are illusory appearances? To get a clear understanding of these levels of reality we need to rely on the scriptures of the Indian masters. Arya Nagarjuna was one of the greatest scholars of the ancient Nalanda tradition and his work Fundamental Wisdom is a masterpiece. Lama Tsongkhapa saw this excellent work as very important and realized emptiness through reading commentaries on chapter 18 of this text. Geshe Tenzin Namdak will explain this inspiring and profound chapter and enrich it with teachings on illusory appearances.

Without the wisdom realizing ultimate reality,

Even though having generated renunciation or the mind of enlightenment

One cannot cut the root cause of samsara.

Therefore, make effort in the method to realize dependent arising.
