Using Jeffrey Hopkins' commentary on Precious Garland, Guy explains some of the reasonings that Nagarjuna put forth to establish that things are empty of intrinsic nature. He also responds to a question about the relationship between Buddha nature and nirvana, which inspires further engaging discussion.
