Nagarjuna Emptiness Verse I

Ok, let's look at the first part of the verse about emptiness by Nagarjuna. We've gone through these words before, so it should be easy.

gang la is for whom.

stong pa nyid is emptiness.

rung ba is possible.

Or, translated: For whom emptiness is possible.

The next verse is then the punch line stating more about this first assertion.

Remember that emptiness and dependent origination is two sides of the same coin. That will be important when understanding the commentaries around this verse.
