"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,

Have either of you two sages read The Buddhist Unconscious: The alaya-vijñana in the context of Indian Buddhist thought by William S. Waldron? I was about 1/3 through it and have not been able to get back to it, but intend to. I thought it was comprehensive, and insightful - so far as I got.
