Middle Way

Almost certainly written in 1958, this brief text in verse summarizes Tsongkhapa Lobzang Drakpa's approach to Prāsaṅgika Madhyamaka based on his interpretation of Candrakīrti's Introduction to the Middle Way (Madhyamakāvatāra).

Pithy verses on the philosophy of the Middle Way of Consequence (Prāsaṅgika Madhyamaka), which Jamyang Khyentse composed in 1943.

A brief text summarizing the five great logical arguments of the Madhyamaka, or Middle Way: 1) the investigation of the cause: the Diamond Splinters; 2) the investigation of the result: refuting existent or non-existent effects; 3) the investigation of both: refuting the four permutations of arising; 4) the investigation of essential identity: ‘neither one nor many’; and 5) the logical argument of Great Interdependence.

This section of Gateway to Learning (mKhas 'jug) explains the so-called "Four Great Logical Arguments of the Middle Way" (dbu ma'i gtan tshigs chen po bzhi), which are: 1) investigation of the cause: the Diamond Splinters; 2) investigation of the result: refuting existent or non-existent results; 3) investigation of the essential identity: ‘neither one nor many’; and 4) investigation of all: the Great Interdependence. This translation also includes some comments from Khenpo Nüden's celebrated commentary.
