Studying the Middle Way is an essential practice for many Buddhists, and gaining realizations of this is the only way to gain the result of liberation or full enlightenment.

Going Deeper in Understanding

It’s often stated that for some practitioners, they need to be convinced about the doctrine of emptiness before fully engaging in deep practice for others. His Holiness the Dalai Lama recommends the study of Nagarjuna’s The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way in order to understand emptiness, and often cites Aryadeva’s Four Hundred Stanzas On The Middle Way in order to further elaborate on it.

Below are some video playlists that hopefully will be of use to someone who is interested in studying the Middle Way.
