In this video Lama Zopa Rinpoche gives a very clear explanation of "Gak.cha", the very subtle object to be refuted according to the Prasangika view when meditating on the emptiness of the "I". In our ordinary view we are constantly labeling and believing in the true existence of I and all phenomena, while these things never appear to us as being merely labeled by our minds. It is just this hallucinated view then becomes the cause of our samsara. Rinpoche goes on to explain how the differing views of existence and emptiness are explained according to the four philosophical schools. While all schools hold that superstitious thought based on ignorance is the cause of, or root of, samsara, the object to be refuted and, therefore, to realize as empty differs. To cut the root of samsara we must realize what ignorance believes as truly existent to be totally empty. Video Transcript available at http://onlinelearning.fpmt.org/file.p...
