    1. dalai lama has said i'm in a wonderful public talk um madhyamaka approaches emptiness from the side of the object of knowledge while yoga chara approaches emptiness from the side of the subject i think that's a great way 00:28:26 to see matters and so i'm going to present uh yogachara here as supplementing um yamaka rather than as conflicting with with it and i think that this approach makes good sense of the most important differences between 00:28:39 majamaka and yogachara it shows us how to reconcile the difference as well and the difference is this while majamaca takes emptiness through the emptiness of intrinsic identity or intrinsic existence yogachara takes 00:28:53 emptiness to be the emptiness of subject object duality or the absence of externality to the mind of the object of mind
