Example text

You will attain this 42 A COMPENDIUM OF WAYS OF KNOWING as well through the valid cognitions of bare perception and inferential understanding. These three types of know ledge are valid in the sense that they arise from valid sources. But since your cognition of what Buddha has said may be presumptive or inattentive, these are said to be valid only in an etymological sense and not in an actual one. 10 INFERENTIAL UNDERSTANDING Inferential understanding is the comprehension of an obscure fact through reliance on a correct line of reasoning as its basis.

In this instance you,r bare perception directly appreiiends the object that appears to it, an objective entity. The metaphysical entity that it apprehends indirectly is also considered its involved object, but it is not the appearing object of this bare perception. If a metaphysical entity actually appears clearly to your consciousness, then it is through a conceptual cognition that you know it. Furthermore, bare perception is defined as an awareness that is non-deceptive and devoid of any conceptualising.

6) One of fancying ahead about something in the future, or about what might have been if things were different, confuses a plan or an idea with the actuality of the present moment. Thus all six of these types of conceptual cognition are decep- SEEMINGLY BARE PERCEPTION 33 tive since they mix their appearing object with what they conceptualise about. (7) A non-conceptual seemingly bare per:ception of a blurred object is also deceptive because what appears to it in actuality is not so. Non-conceptual seemingly bare perception, a way of knowing in which something non-existent appears clearly and non-conceptual distorted cognition are all mutually inclusive.
