this has been bugging me and i think i figured out why.Malcolm wrote: ↑Thu Jan 07, 2021 3:19 pmNo. That is the third of the four extremes.
That which arises dependently is free of all four extremes: existence, nonexistence, both, and neither.
That’s the middle way, according to the Buddha and Nagarjuna.
What i said was pure Madhyamika ...the way Lord Nagarjuna taught it and the way Gelug teaches.
You know there is a big rift in this between Nyingma and Gelug.
so you input your Nygma Dzogchen view and call it Lord Nagarjuna's ..thats not nice..
Teaching the newer revised Nygma version and saying it is Buddha's and Lord Nagarjuna Buddha's teaching...
at least be honest when you say stuff.
i recall when i first explained sunyata and a bunch of Dzogchen people here jumped on me and started in on their version of Emptiness..
totally some dzogchen thing as finally i think he was called smjc said you guys were mixing up stuff.
then set your crowd straight..
it's all here somewhere a couple years back...
you talk about some meditation practice mixed with Tantra and you cannot compare that to this practice.
You are like lost in some intellectual trip ..
we are working out our's and the collective Karma of all sentients in Mappo..all the realms we are working on..
not some trip that produces only intellectual banter.
so stay honest..don't; say what you think Sunyata is according to Lord Nagarjuna Buddha and insert some other thought on the matter and actually say it is Lord Nagarjuna';s teaching..
