Making the Old New Again and Again: Legitimation and Innovation in the Tibetan Buddhist Chöd Tradition - Michelle Janet Sorensen:http://academiccommons.columbia.edu/catalog/ac%3A161470
The thousands of lines of the Prajnaparamita can be summed up in the following two sentences:
1) One should become a Bodhisattva (or, Buddha-to-be), i.e. one who is content with nothing less than all-knowledge attained through the perfection of wisdom for the sake of all beings.
2) There is no such thing as a Bodhisattva, or as all-knowledge, or as a ‘being’, or as the perfection of wisdom, or as an attainment.
To accept both these contradictory facts is to be perfect. - Conze

Thx for sharing. You rock!
To understand the emptiness of inherent existence is to know dependent-arising as the reality of all phenomena.
