It’s so interesting to review the old topic of ལྡོག་པ་ངོས་འཛིན།. We have to know what we are talking about before getting into more complex discussions and debates. We need to know the differences between unique identity of our subject (ལྡོག་པ་), the meaning (དོན་), the definition (མཚན་ཉིད་) and the definiendum (མཚོན་བྱ་), otherwise we are just mixing apples and pears and thus merely increasing our confusion instead of coming to clear understanding beyond any doubt. It’s a great feeling to see the mental fog starting to disperse.
