With many skillful means and as a naturally-gifted teacher, he is able to effectively expound the Dharma to guide people in their learning of Buddhism. Throughout the years, Venerable Master has taught many texts including the notable lectures of the Mula-Madhyaaka-Karika, Maha-Prajna-Paramita Sastra, Diamond Sutra, Verses Delineating the Eight Consciousnesses, and The Thirty Verses on Consciousness Only.
