Perceptions & Direct Contact - Two Levels of Consciousness

     “The Lankavatara sutra … covers all the major teachings of Mahayana Buddhism, and contains but two teachings:
          • everything we perceive as being real is nothing but the perception of our own minds
          • the knowledge of this is something that must be realized and experienced for oneself and cannot be expressed in words.”
