Quotation

ཕུང་པོ་རྣམ་དཔྱད་སྟོང་པ་ཉིད། །

ཆུ་ཤིང་བཞིན་དུ་སྙིང་པོ་མེད། །
རྣམ་པ་ཀུན་གྱི་མཆོག་ལྡན་པའི། །

སྟོང་ཉིད་དེ་ལྟར་མ་ཡིན་ནོ། །

The aggregates, when analysed, are found to be emptiness,
Devoid of any substance, like a hollow plantain tree,
But this form of emptiness is not like the emptiness
That is endowed with all the supreme attributes.

Mañjuśrīkīrti, A Short Teaching Concerning our Assertions on the View
