Great thread, and an interesting topic that hasn't seen much investigation, I think....


"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")

Have either of you two sages read The Buddhist Unconscious: The alaya-vijñana in the context of Indian Buddhist thought by William S. Waldron? I was about 1/3 through it and have not been able to get back to it, but intend to. I thought it was comprehensive, and insightful - so far as I got.
A bodhisattva does not become weary of evil beings nor does he commit the error of bringing forth thoughts inclined to reject them and cast them aside. Avatamsaka Sutra, ch. 25
