Gender becomes irrelevant - Illusory Advice


It is a Vajrayana ‘fact’ that men are externally form (compassion, male) and internally emptiness (wisdom, female). This is a view that is embraced in the practice of Vajrayana. It is not ‘truth,’ it is simply the view that functions in this method. Men view the phenomenal world as female in order to discover their occluded inner female nature. Individuals already have contact with their outer nature, so it is helpful to awaken awareness of their inner nature so that they can experience the nonduality of inner and outer.
