Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Part of a series of teachings given from March 6-11, 2010, at Sravasti Abbey.

  • Two truths as presented in the different tenet systems
  • The Vaibhashika view: if the awareness of something does not operate after that thing is destroyed or mentally separated into other parts, that thing just exists conventionally (reducible)
  • A phenomenon such that, if it were physically destroyed or mentally separated into parts, the consciousness apprehending it would not be canceled is an ultimate truth (irreducible)
  • The definitions of the two truths, even in this system, are from the point of view of mind
