Show Summary Details


This introductory chapter discusses the religious, philosophical, and pedagogical issues in its exploration of unbounded wholeness raised by Authenticity. It argues that Authenticity offers a system of logic without framing such logic as a process of authentication. Its overall point that unbounded wholeness and open awareness are not apprehensible by reasoning is widely accepted across both Bon and Buddhist Dzogchen traditions, but in no other instance that we know of is this claim formulated by Dzogchen with the language of tshad ma or pramāna.

Keywords: Authenticity; Tibet; open awareness; logic; tshad ma
