Important Academic Essay on the Profound

This should be required reading prior to engaging in Academic Discussion here......
དམ་པའི་དོན་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ཆེ་བ་དང་།
རྟོག་གེའི་ཡུལ་མིན་བླ་མའི་བྱིན་རླབས་དང་།
སྐལ་ལྡན་ལས་འཕྲོ་ཅན་གྱིས་རྟོགས་པ་སྟེ།
དེ་ནི་ཤེས་རབ་ལ་ནི་ལོ་རྟོག་སེལ།།


"Absolute Truth is not an object of analytical discourse or great discriminating wisdom,
It is realized through the blessing grace of the Guru and fortunate Karmic potential.
Like this, mistaken ideas of discriminating wisdom are clarified."
- (Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche, from his summary of "The Ocean of Definitive Meaning")

Sorry Cone, but this essay is bullshit! :smile:

I see you can claim to be a receiver and detector of bullshit, Greg. Congrats!

Not at all! I rely on one of these myself...

The beauty of it is that it 100% objective, so it can even detect bullshit that under normal circumstances would draw me into it's web of gibberish, balderdash, gobbledygook and mumbo jumbo.
