No. I'm immensely stupid and understand very little, oh Shasana. It has taken me decades to realise that. ;)


Better tell ChNN that using 'Neuter Mahakala' is a sign of ignorance too.
Take this one up with Malcolm, not me. That was his point. I called you a blithering fool, not ChNN! :P

ok, i'm wrong.
"Don't profess a view you haven't realized!
Since the view is devoid of viewing, mind essence is an expanse of great emptiness.
Since the meditation is without meditating, leave your individual experience free from fixation.
Since the conduct is without acting, it is unfabricated naturalness.
Since the fruition is without abandoning or achieving, it is the dharmakaya of great bliss.
These four sentences are words from my heart:
Contradict them and you fail to discover the nature of Ati Yoga."


Guru Padmasambhava.
From "Advice from the Lotus-Born".

ChNN by inference, as it was he I quoted.

I resemble that remark, however. ;)

I find phenomena are always symbolic and dream-like right up until they punch you in the inherently empty face and you impute suffering. ;)

Ain't that the truth!
