In just beginning to scratch the surface, I'm ovewhelmed as I'm sure many people get...and yet I'm going to the last of a several-year program of Shedras to hear Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche teach about the final three chapters of Madhyamikavatara. So I've been doing my best to have at least a cursory understanding of (especially) the 6th Chapter.
I am currently reading the Padmakara translation with Mipham Rinpoche's commentary, and listening to many many hours of recorded teachings from Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. Amazingly enough I still feel like I could use more help.
I wanted to start this thread to ask the Sangha for any words of advice, experience, clarifications that helped you understand the distinctions between Cittamatra, Madhyamika, whatever!
**P.S. Is anybody going to be at the Lotus Gardens Shedra this year?? Has anybody attended the preceeding ones to this series?
