dismantling

I have a latent reluctance to say this. You can sort of safely say that all the religious system they are really brave in dismantling a lot of things. Like vaibhasika school, they really dismantle the creator god – viciously. Really viciously. They were so good at this. In fact the Madhyamika logic to dismantle the existence of truly, permanent god and all of that is basically borrowed from the vaibhasika people. But one thing, all this philosophical system, they analyse, they dismantle this, they dismantle that, but at the end of the day, they always come with something. They will always say: “Okay, this has to exist. This has to be true.” Now this is were the madhyamika was really almost like a, really an amazing revolution. Because madhyamika system really tells you, it is brave enough or is really courages and daring to say: “Actually, if you search and search and search and if you find something, then you are wrong.”
