Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Objective: In Mahāyāna Buddhism, there are two main schools: Mādhyamika and Yogācāra. Buddhism is introduced from India to Tibet in the 7th century.

This colloquium aims to outline the history of Mādhyamika philosophy (especially of emptiness and two truths) by reading Indian and Tibetan Buddhist texts.
