Example text

This has been quoted in part in quotations (28) and (40), but it seems worth repeating in full in the present context: (73) Those who see entities as existent and nonexistent do not see reality, Therefore, for them, liberation is also not possible. For us, engaging in conventional activities (tha snyad byed pa) without attachment to existence and nonexistence, it is not the case that [liberation] is impossible. If to see entities and nonentities were to see reality, there would be no one who would not see reality; therefore that is not the vision of reality.

The two truths We have already seen references to "convention" versus "reality" in quotations (4), (5), and (6). lvrtisatya). Nagarjuna's classic statement on the two truths occurs in MMK 24-8, 9, 10. Unfortunately, as explained earlier, we apparently have no commentary by Buddhapalita on chapter twentyfour. Nevertheless, in his commentary on the first twenty-two chapters, Buddhapalita makes a number of statements related to the idea of the two truths. As far as ultimate truth is concerned, we have seen that the lack of intrinsic nature in things is said to be reality (tattva) in quotations (28) and (29) and the real state (yiithiitathya) of entities in quotation (19).

Therefore we teach that because [the skandhas, dhiitus, and iiyatanas] are dependently originated, they are free from the faults of existence and nonexistence, not annihilated [and] not permanent; but we do not say that they are nonexistent. Likewise, he asks rhetorically, (64) How is it possible to say that the dependently originated exists or does not exist? In his commentary on MMK 12-8, Buddhapalita denies that the Madhyamikas hold that suffering (dubkha) is nonexistent; rather, they say that it is dependently originated.
