emptiness study pathway

Postby KonchokZoepa » Thu Sep 26, 2013 7:50 pm

if anyone here has studied emptiness doctrine extensively.

mind only approach to shunyata
svatantrika
and prasangika

i would like to know which books text scriputres you have taken as the the pathway to study madhyamaka.

thaaanks
If the thought of demons
Never rises in your mind,
You need not fear the demon hosts around you.
It is most important to tame your mind within....

In so far as the Ultimate, or the true nature of being is concerned,
there are neither buddhas or demons.
He who frees himself from fear and hope, evil and virtue,
will realize the insubstantial and groundless nature of confusion.
Samsara will then appear as the mahamudra itself….

That book is awesome, someone gave it to me when I was looking for the exact same thing, it's not that long and worth multiple reads for sure.

Also A Profound Mind by HHDL is very helpful, and a section of it covers the same subject matter.
May the ocean of lands be purified, the ocean of beings liberated, the ocean of Dharma realized,
and the ocean of wisdom fully attained. -The Aspiration of Samantabhadra
