Module I, Week 4: Madhyamaka
Mādhyamaka-studies offer surprisingly modern analysis of the fundamental nature of the inherent laws of existence at all levels of being. We follow Nāgārjuna with his Mūlamādhyamaka and Candrakīrti with his Mādhyamakāvatāra, both Nalanda scholars and yogis. The laws of existence presented here correlate with modern science and Madhyamaka is complementing them by the deep insight into the relational nature of everything existing, and equally to the subject side as to the object side. In this context, Tarab Rinpoche highlights how Subject-Object, Body-Mind and Energy (potential-field)-Matter, are pairs of opposites, which are at the same time in unity.
By this he demonstrates how unity and duality in regard to everything existing are not just separate but simultaneously inseparable. Understanding and gaining insight in our own personal experience how everything is relational with no final reference, could render transparent our genuine self-empowering capacities, and open up to understanding of the deep levels of meditation on the essence of ourselves and the universe.
