Prayer for Nihilists

Dolpo2Arya Nāgārjuna* said:

All the Buddhas teach that emptiness
Definitely eliminates all viewpoints.
Those who hold the view of emptiness
Are said to be incurable.

May the Buddhas have pity on those who hold

That the whole of the Buddha’s teaching on emptiness

Concerns self-emptiness alone,

And hold them in Their compassion.

May the Buddhas have pity on those who hold

That the whole of the Buddha’s teaching on emptiness

Concerns a non-affirming negation alone,

And hold them in Their compassion.

* Mūlamadhyamakakārikā 13.8

 

—Kunchen Dolpopa
