Syadvada Quick-Lube


If you can see the reality in at least seven ways

You can be at peace with it.

And one with it too.


The essence of any War is:

“I think This” vs. “I think This.”

(from the side it looks like it's just two people arguing about “This” and “That” and there is a point to it)

But from inside the seven-fold Syadvada* you know there isn't.

They are fighting for the exact same thing.


And the name of "this" thing-less-ness is Namelessness.


Truth be told: truth is silent.

Enough: I said too much.


* Syadvada is a Jain practice of tentativeness when talking about reality. Reality is too multifaceted to be captured in a single point of view. Syadvada offers a total of seven perspectives to counteract dogmatic thought style and categorical expression.

  1. syād-asti—in some ways, it is,
  2. syād-nāsti—in some ways, it is not,
  3. syād-asti-nāsti—in some ways, it is, and it is not,
  4. syād-asti-avaktavyaḥ—in some ways, it is, and it is indescribable,
  5. syād-nāsti-avaktavyaḥ—in some ways, it is not, and it is indescribable,
  6. syād-asti-nāsti-avaktavyaḥ—in some ways, it is, it is not, and it is indescribable,
  7. syād-avaktavyaḥ—in some ways, it is indescribable.
