The Buddhist view of emptiness is an epistemic insight into the misconception of ontological entities which reveals ontology is truly impossible.
Negation of ontology is also impossible.

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

It is not my fault if I point out that "you" are racist or a bigot or a fool. I am just pointing it out. It is up to "you" to work on these issues, if "you" wish too. My white privilege just got so bored it had to walk to the fridge of its mobile home in between NASCAR commercials while humming the...

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

You take seriously the concerns of the Trump base that led them to vote for him in the first place, which are primarily economic. You stop calling them morons, stupid, deplorables, and racists, which alienates them further and keeps reconciliation at bay. If you use these insults around dharma cent...

Re: Big messages to deplorables ???

The very title of this thread has persuaded me that Trump is certain to win reelection. And you people will be the ones to do it, not his "base". As long as everyone remembers which basket they live in, there will be no other candidate.

Re: "Wild Wild Country" - Osho documentary on Netflix

I wonder how the film would pan out if it were about Trungpa and Shambhala in those days. We would see a group who seemed to play out with militarism, there was sexual abusive activity, there was an adoring group of followers and a charismatic leader who liked dressing up. Those times...70’s and 80...

BTW, yes, but several years ago now, and it was way beyond me. After reading Anyen Rinpoche's book I am going to try again.

Re: Mipham: Gelug = Svatantrika Madhyamaka

It was actually a very specific question: How to Gelugpas deal with Mipham? His arguments are very specific, I assume their responses are also very specific.

Re: Mipham: Gelug = Svatantrika Madhyamaka

It's actually an affirming negation, reverse extrinsic emptiness, as Khenpo Appey quips. Mipham seems to be saying that there's no such thing as a non-affirming negation. I.e.: Any negation affirms its negandum is there to be ... negandum-ed. So any negation is still just categorized emptiness. The...

Re: Mipham: Gelug = Svatantrika Madhyamaka

I wasn't precise enough, let me try to parse out the question. The Gelugpas say: The cup is not empty of its own [conventional] essence [as it appears to ordinary persons], but it is empty of having a truly established nature . (Anyen Rinpoche). This is a non-affirming negative. In other words, the ...

Re: Mipham: Gelug = Svatantrika Madhyamaka

Which seems clear. Yet they call themselves prasangikas and [deleted] they do not admit that conventional truth can withstand analysis (which is the logical flaw of the svatantrikas).

So how can that be?

Mipham: Gelug = Svatantrika Madhyamaka

The Svatantrika Madhyamaka - which is just below the most profound school in the Madhyamaka philosophy, the Prasangika Madhyamaka - uses a term called nominal ultimate reality. A working definition of the word “nominal” is “in name only,” as in something that is just merely labeled as ultimate real...
