Nagarjuna is the great systemitizer of the Madhyamaka philosophy of the Middle Way. What does the union of emptiness and wisdom mean? What are the differences between external emptiness and internal emptiness? How do you realize the nature of the wisdom of emptiness? The teaching will be a detailed explanation of these important concepts which are essential to obtaining enlightenment.
