Why did they do that? 

.

Because each of them heard and understood something different, sometimes contradictory to what the others had understood.

Quotes

Until one really and truly knows one’s own mind (Reality as it is) and can govern it with awareness, even if very many explanations of reality are given, they remain nothing more than ink on paper or matters for debate among intellectuals, without the possibility of the birth of any understanding of the real meaning (Reality as it is - U2T).

Doubting the commonly accepted version of reality ~ Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche

.

Ordinary people do not question the commonly accepted version of reality. They conform to the standard values of subduing enemies and cherishing friends and family. Materialism, ambition and mundane achievements are the worldly hallmarks of success. We experience the phenomenal world and our minds as solid and truly existent. Very few people ๐—ฑ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฏ๐˜ these assertions and question their solidity. Yet, the process of disbelief is the first step on the spiritual path.

Discard all lingering doubts ~ Atisha

Discard all lingering ๐—ฑ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฏ๐˜๐˜€, and strive with dedication in your practice. Thoroughly relinquish sloth, mental dullness, and laziness, and strive always with joyful perseverance.

Definitions have vanished ~ Sengcan

Infinitely large and infinitely small;

no difference, for definitions have vanished

So too with Being and non-Being.

Waste no time in ๐—ฑ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฏ๐˜๐˜€ and arguments

that have nothing to do with this.

Sharpen Your Intellect ~ Chรถgyam Trungpa

The first step for you as a student is to sharpen your intellect and ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜ ๐—ฏ๐˜‚๐˜† ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜†๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ ๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป. To wake yourself up, cynical thinking and critical questioning are extremely important. Otherwise, you are completely helpless. You are just being fed through an intravenous system. So let us not be in the hospital! Let us be full, living persons who could actually relate with what is being presented, who could think critically, work it out, and understand, and question anything we do not understand. This has nothing to do with becoming an intellectual person. It is an intuitive process
