Bodhidharma once said that there are two doors to enter the Way: by Reason or by Practice. He was clearly seeing Joscha Bach in the first door.
I don’t follow or think about thinkers. But this thinker is really not a thinker. He is some crystal-clear emanation of Manjushri-mind. I admire profoundly the depth of his insight, which, though clearly bookish, does not come from books alone. He is a genuine bodhisattva-force, using thinking to wake people from thinking.
