The Prasangika (Skt. Prāsaṅgika; Tib. ཐལ་འགྱུར་པ་, Wyl. thal 'gyur) or 'Consequence' tradition is a subdivision of the Madhyamika school of philosophy. A defining feature of this approach is its use of consequentialist arguments (Skt. prasaṅga) to establish the ultimate truth of emptiness beyond all conceptual elaboration. This approach was first explicitly formulated by the Indian scholar Buddhapalita and later elaborated upon and defended by Chandrakirti.
