“First, you see the ultimate truth of the table. Then, with that as a cause, as a result you see the merely labeled table. [The ultimate truth of the table] supports, helps, the existence of the table merely labeled by mind. Oh, that unification, oh, that is the Prasangika’s view of emptiness,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche teaches in the module “Advice for Realizing Lam-rim,” which is part of Living in the Path, FPMT Education Services’ essential lam-rim program as taught by Rinpoche.
You can find the eighth section of this module “Meditate Until You Realize the Prasangika’s View of Emptiness” which includes a short video clip of Rinpoche teaching, on FPMT’s Online Learning Center: http://onlinelearning.fpmt.org/mod/page/view.php?id=4543
