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...

For a few minutes maybe.

But after that there’s only one thing in the world that is endlessly fascinating and it’s right under your nose. Right under your chin too, actually.

Re: Guess who said this?

Perhaps one of the Brahma-viharas led to the original post.

Maybe eventually one of the mods will delete it because after all cleanliness is next to godliness.
