Therefore those two are designated in relation [to each other]; but they have no establishment or nonestablishment by intrinsic nature [or: "no establishment by intrinsic nature or nonestablishment"]. Therefore since, in that way, those two are not maintained to be existent or nonexistent, [this] is designated as the middle way. Apart from that designation, we see no other defining characteristic of the establishment of those two. The same analysis is applied to the "appropriator" and the "appropriation," that is, the self and the five skandhas: (4 7) ...
According to the Madhyamikas, it is those who base their search for liberation on views of existence and nonexistence, entities and nonentities, whose quest will fail. Thus far from being an obstacle to liberation, the realization that there is no intrinsic nature in things alone makes it possible. 38 BUDDHAPALITA'S EXPOSITION OF THE MADHYAMIKA In the Indian context, any theory of liberation has to deal with the actions (karman) which bind one to sarpsara and the passions - in Buddhist terminology, the afflictions (klesa)- which produce them.

As Buddhapalita puts it, 30 BUDDHAPALITA'S EXPOSITION OF THE MADHYAMIKA (51) Those two things which are not established as being identical or different, are not established, because establishment in a [manner] different from those two [alternatives] is not possible. On the other hand, something which is dependently designated cannot be held to be identical to or different from anything, since it has no intrinsic nature: (52) For us, dependently designated entities, which are empty of intrinsic nature and are like magical illusions and mirages and reflections, have no identity or difference.
