From the book “The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way: Nagarjuna’s Mulamadhyamakakarika”

 The Buddha’s teaching of the Dharma

 is based on two truths: a truth of worldly convention and an ultimate truth. Those who do not understand the distinction drawn between these two truths do not understand the Buddha’s profound truth.

Without a foundation in the conventional truth the significance of the ultimate cannot be taught. Without understanding the significance of the ultimate, liberation is not achieved.

– Nagarjuna
