Compassion and the view of emptiness are at the heart of all the Buddha’s teachings. Without the view of emptiness and practice of compassion one cannot liberate oneself and others. It is important to understand their inseparability and realize the true nature of all phenomena. This is the weapon that is needed for cutting the ego of self-cherishing. Ven. Tulku Yeshi will discuss Nagarjuna’s text Ratnamala.
