Therefore it is better to stay in the conventional sphere of the aggregates: perception, consciousness, feeling
Kind regards


but you don't.

There is a Dharma language used for discussing Dharma. It is very precise. I suggest you learn it.

TMingyur has world split into, shall we say "represands" and "representations". He feels for every valid representation there must be an truly existent represand, otherwise, that representation is invalid. It is a very substantialist view.

He rejects madhyamaka because Madhyamaka renders all representations invalid since there are not actual represands, only conventional represands.

You are totally conditioned by your learned thinking. That is the effect of philosophy.

Kind regards



I am not a philosopher. I don't have any views. But it is interesting to see how yours are exposed at every turn.

Just that:

Quote:
"What is the All? Simply the eye & forms, ear & sounds, nose & aromas, tongue & flavors, body & tactile sensations, intellect & ideas. This, monks, is called the All. [1] Anyone who would say, 'Repudiating this All, I will describe another,' if questioned on what exactly might be the grounds for his statement, would be unable to explain, and furthermore, would be put to grief. Why? Because it lies beyond range."

Kind regards

The same quote again, that everyone knows and nobody disputes.
Talk about clinging. You're drowning in it.


Well, you know that TMingyur is a one trick pony, a substantialist one at that.

Well then ... I wonder what is so attractive about all these tenets about and around "emptiness" which are mere "intellect & ideas".

Kind regards

There is nothing particularly attractive about them. They are nothing more than conventional tools at our disposal for understanding and navigating our way out of our current samsaric condition. Nothing more, nothing less. Many people have progressed on the path through utilizing these tools and conventional understandings as buttresses to their practice, which leads to authentic direct experience.

There are no tenets around emptiness. Emptiness is not a view. It is the antidote to views, the antidote to tenets.

Views are only "asti" and "nasti" i.e. "is", or "isn't".

What do you imply by "the ground of empty appearances"?

All phenomena are either mind or matter. So mind and matter is everything. Then we argue through various reasoning that everything is nothing. So mind and matter are nothing. But what give rise to our ability to discuss that mind and matter are nothing? Our mind, like matter, is but a phenomenon. And we have argued that everything is nothing. So our mind is nothing. So is nothing that which give rise to our ability to come to such a conclusion?

Is "apple" a view of not? On what basis do the thoughts "apple" and "emptiness" arise?

Kind regards

Will this really cut the imagination of or the longing for example emptiness?
