In one of the very earliest Western books about Tibetan Buddhism, entitled "The Message of the Tibetans," Arnaud Desjardin reported a conversation that he had had with Kalu Rinpoche.

He had asked Rinpoche the age-old question,

"What is Truth?"

Rinpoche replied,

"You live in illusion and the appearance of things. There is a reality, and you are that reality, but you donít know it. If you should ever wake up to that reality you would realize that you are nothing, and being nothing, you are everything. That is all."

What if the concepts of ultimate truth and ultimate reality are themselves the illusion?

I'd say...it's neither. That truth might be...experiential and nonconceptual.

"When a practitioner is introduced to naked awareness...in the moment of recognizing the essence of awareness,
the obscuration of dualistic knowledge is absent."
