That one who thus sees [things] as they really are, understands reality (tattva). By understanding reality, one will be liberated. Moreover he says, (70) For one who sees reality, there is nothing [further] to be done. Thus Buddhapalita accepts the common Buddhist view that liberation is the cessation of rebirth in saq1sara and that the cessation of rebirth is brought about by a direct experience of reality. The difficulty is that, from the Madhyamaka point of view, what reality can there be?

Therefore entities' lack of intrinsic nature is reality, and only by seeing that will one be liberated. And likewise he says, (29) Thus because the view of existence and nonexistence of entities will have many faults, therefore that "lack of intrinsic nature of entities" is the vision of reality; it is the middle path; and just that is the attainment of ultimate reality (paramiirtha). Finally, we have already seen in quotation (19) that Buddhapalita says that the real state of entities is their lack of intrinsic nature.
