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).

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.

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.

From the context of Buddhism, judgment starts with discernment, discernment is a necessary quality to have, but combine discernment with ignorance, and you have suffering.

We care because about judgmental people because it must be very painful for people to be judgmental.
