Two truths

Two truths

Postby tobes » Wed Feb 01, 2012 7:36 am

Who can tell me a little about the two truths in Kumarajiva and Chih-i?

I read Swanson's book about a year ago, but I'm a little rusty....

It's really more about three truths: the traditional two truths, and middle way mediating them. The middle way is identified with Buddhagarbha & the Ekayana teachings.

Yes, it's properly three truths, emptyness, dependent reality, and the middle. If you leave out the third you can't grasp Tiantai properly. I was reading Swanson's book, it's fantastic.
