Re: from selflessness to emptiness

Why do you feel it's dangerous to claim the "mental aspect" is all there is? Whether it's all that is, is truly ultimately irrelevant, it's all conjecture. It's the classic phenomena vs. Noumena argument. If such a noumena does exist there is still no way to ever "know" it. What is experienced dire...

Re: from selflessness to emptiness

Terms like "physical" "particle" and "real" are imputations too. When we are gripped by the idea that there is something other than sense impressions that we can work with, a form of reification has taken place. same problem as i said earlier though: sautrantika has already established that "partic...

Re: Dzogchen, Buddhist and non-Buddhist teachings...

Did you mean to say "cause" instead of consequence? The idea that Dharma is the cause and Dzogchen the result can't possibly be universal, simply because the are billions of Buddhists who are not Dzogchenpas. All Buddhas are Dzogchenpas. :twisted: Would that include the Mormon Buddhas? :tongue: All...

thats pretty good but constituent particles are in fact experienced any time you experience a fire hydrant. likewise constituent movements of mind are experienced when you experience an ordinary emotion etc. they are both experienced in the sense that they appear to consciousness (though they are n...

Re: from selflessness to emptiness

these are only impressions existing inside a persons mind, and have nothing to do with the external physical particles. Externality and constituent particles are imputations as well, at no point during the experience of a fire hydrant does the experience itself claim to be external. And in direct e...

Re: Understanding emptiness

So, why do I label a car as car? Instead of a lion. I see it as a machine not a giant animal. Wouldn't that mean there is something from the car's own side to make it a car? perhaps we can for the moment agree that there is something on the side of the object--but what is that thing? is it "lion" o...

Re: Aalaya and Neutral awareness

Can one say that, according to Dzogchen, Aalaya (kun-gzhi) and the neutral awareness (shes-pa-lung-ma-bstan) are the same thing? No, they are different. The ālaya is ignorance. I've seen ālaya roughly translated to (or said to represent) a sort of storehouse or warehouse consciousness, is it due to...

Re: Conventional/Ultimate Valid Cognitions

A valid cognition on the conventional level would just be the most accurate description or representation of ultimate cognition one can convey using concepts. Conventional or relative truths always correlate with the use of linear thought processes and language. So in truth, a 'conventional truth' o...
