Aryadeva’s Stanzas | Thubten Chodron

If you are not sure which branch of Buddhism you follow, or not sure where you should start your path I would suggest the Buddhist Handbook or Everything Buddhism.

I received transmission and explanation of fersus text from Khunnu Lama Tenzin Gyaltsen from whom I received all 13 great classic Indian texts. Static space, for example, cannot be considered substantially existent based on the argument that it performs the function of acting as the object of cognition of it, as Vaibhashika asserts, because static things do not do anything.

According to the traditional pan-Indic analysis of sense perception, the power of cognitive sensors travels out to sensory objects in order to perceive them, not that sensory information travels from the object to the sensor as is asserted by Western science. Therefore, you need to understand fully the deepest atyadeva on voidness. Moreover, there is no guarantee of what kind of rebirth will follow this one.

It is proper, then, to live in fear and dread while under the influence of disturbing emotions and karma, and to renounce them and recurring rebirth under the control of them.

This requires a powerful understanding of selflessness, coupled with a vast accumulation of merit, or verwus energy, resulting from the kind of love, compassion, and altruistic intention cultivated by bodhisattvas. You are attached to your body or, as a heterosexual man, to the body of a woman, as pleasurable because you incorrectly consider it clean.


The vase would have to be truly nonexistent. Also, how could something truly existent and in the process of arising be already truly existing as what it will be?

Functional phenomena that arise from causes and circumstances cannot be static with truly established existence.

If your occupation determined your truly existent caste, then even an outcaste could be considered a aryaadeva or a member of the royal caste if he worked as such.

Further, you share not only in their taxed wealth, but also in their negative karmic force built up in your service, such as in war. It is also contradictory for time to be both static and to allow functional phenomena to appear now or not to appear now, as Vedanta asserts, vefsus then, again, something static would be performing a function.

Also, there is no certainty even that worldly happiness aryaeva arise from constructive behavior, since you can destroy its positive force through anger. Don’t have a Kindle? If a truly existent vase truly existed with a truly existent visible form in general, then whenever seeing any visible form, you would be seeing a vase.

Note that this point can be understood either in a Svatantrika vrsus as indicating different levels of understanding voidness needed for gaining liberation aryadeeva enlightenment, or in a Prasangika manner that these two levels of understanding are stages for attaining either liberation or enlightenment.

Then, if you understand the voidness of one thing, you will understand the voidness of everything. Also, as there are no truly existent phenomena, it makes no sense to divide phenomena into some that truly exist and some that do not truly exist, like the Chittamatrins do. Mahayana practitioners must eliminate not only obstructions to liberation but also obstructions to the perfect knowledge of all phenomena.

A useful summary of this tradition, its literature, and historiography may be found in Wedemeyer Thus since the tiniest particles that make up the form of the vase are araydeva imputations on their parts, how can a composite of non-truly existent parts constitute a truly existent whole cognitive object? Either you will have to depart first or your loved one will, verus the parting is inevitable. Also, how can an arising truly exist before it has occurred and then become connected to a truly existent object that has not yet arisen and, by that connection, make that object arise?


Moreover, eye sensors, being physical matter, cannot be a way of being aware of anything; and consciousness, being a way of being aware of something, cannot be something physical that travels out to an object. How can you find happiness as a king, if veruss are continually exploiting others and fighting wars?

Aryadeva now analyzes arisings as being ultimately truly existent.

When does the process of a truly existing arising occur then? Aryadevs you like to tell us about a lower price? Most of Aryadeva’s works were not preserved in the original Sanskrit, but they mainly survived in Tibetan and Chinese translations. Therefore, avoid the attitude of giving to others in order to receive something back in return, since that is no different from a business transaction.

In general, any cause that does not have a result cannot be a cause, and so every cause itself must be a result of something arywdeva, since the ability of a cause to give its result is caused by circumstances.

Thus, cognition is like an illusion, arising from illusion-like consciousness, sensors, and objects. Your high position comes from previous karmic causes, not from caste.
