And it is in virtue of these notions that we are caught in the web of delusion, enmeshed in samsaric. existence. Language itself constitutes the boundaries, and thus the bonds, of samsaric existence.

They do examine essences (svabhava ), not as realities "out there" in the external world, but as correctly formed ideas and definitions. 87 In fact, although the classical Yogacara thinkers do not employ the term "language essences," they often do use such terms as "essence" (svabhava ), leading some to think they have not understood the Madhyamika teaching of emptiness and no-essence. , that notions of the essences ·of things are but mental constructs.
