The various Buddhist views of reality are not competing with or refuting each other.
They are indispensable at various times, and for different persons. They are necessary while helpful.
There is an orderly progression, from Vaibhasika realism, through Sautrantika subtle realism, and Madhyamika self-emptiness, to the realization of Maha Madhyamika other-emptiness.
If we grasp at these stages as “The Truth”, we lose the view, and become attached to a blind belief.
tadyatha om gate gate paragate parasamgate bodhi svaha
OM, it is thus: Gone, gone, gone beyond, gone perfectly beyond, to enlightenment!
