Reflections on Death

The dogmatists have claimed to have found the truth, others say that it cannot be apprehended; the Sceptics continue the search.

Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union
Union is Great Bliss

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
