Studying Shantideva’s Presentation of Emptiness – Tsenzhab Serkong Rinpoche

In terms of the surface or superficial, conventional truth and deepest truth of any phenomenon, the point is that when we establish the conventional truth of something, we simultaneously establish its deepest truth as its essential nature. There is nothing, not even an atom of anything existing, that is findable as something self-established. Therefore, although the two truths about any validly knowable phenomenon come together in one package and are of one essential nature, that doesn’t mean that the two are one and the same.
