Background

A description of the experience

The Ceasing of Notions [or the Treatise on the Transcendence of Cognition]

41.  Emmon asks ‘ Why does a true man of the Way remain unknown; why is he not recognised by others?’

Master Nyuri answers:  ‘Just as the pauper is unlikely to recognise a rare treasure, so the true man is beyond the understanding of the vulgar’

************************************

Emmon ‘There are many imposters who do not care for the true Dharma; they assume an air of dignity and chiefly spend their time occupying themselves with refined matters.  Many men and women seek their company.  Why is that?’

Master Nyuri answers:  ‘Just as a loose woman attracts a lot of men, or as flies swarm around rotting meat, so reputation and name are powerful attractions.’
