Sample text

The hermeneutical link to purity in Rongzom’s critique of Madhyamaka emerges particularly in his vehement criticism of the objectification of the relative truth. According to Rongzom, if a distinct veridical status were ascribed to an authentic relative (yang dag pa’i kun rdzob) with reference to its ability, albeit only relative, to function within the realm of karma and kleśas, it would clearly denigrate the principle of purity, the relative truth of the Mahāyoga. By holding such an objectified authentic relative to be true on its own level, yet ultimately false, the two truths could indeed not be inseparable.

103 As we have seen, the different schools of Buddhism in Tibet ­propagated different interpretations of the nature of, and relationship between, the views of Sūtra and Mantra. For some advocates of the Early Translations, the relative and the absolute are of equal 34 establish ing appear anc es as divin e veridical value; thus the relative as divinities must be the object of realization just as much as the ultimate equality is. Seen in this light, the emptiness qua freedom from all mental constructs advocated by the Madhyamaka as the supreme view, put simply, lacks divine appearances as the relative truth.

5 we shall briefly consider Rongzom’s influence on Mipham’s evaluation of purity. Rongzom’s attempt to prove purity through the four reasonings in Establishing Appearances as Divine may have inspired Mipham to allocate a specific valid cognition for purity, and Mipham’s treatment may reciprocally shed light on Rongzom’s stance. One may wonder which scriptures inspired Rongzom to establish purity by means of the four principles of reasoning (rigs pa bzhi, yukti-catuṣṭayam). The Saṁdhinirmocanasūtra, the earliest known source that employs the four principles of reasoning, certainly may have been an inspiration.
