      Can anyone help translate, Dr Thurman, the translator on the universal vehicle?

      introduction xxxii

      actualization and sociology historical level

      talking about making bitter things sweeter for the merchant class

      the sweet taste of its beneficial import, therefore, had to be revealed by the idealistic hermeneutic,  critiquing the exaggerated nihilism of the centrists by its experientialist grounding of the viability of relativity in the ineffability of the non dual relative reality.”

      I think he’s basically saying that the philosophically deconstructive Nagarjuna seemed nihilistic and cold to the wealthy and comfortable classes, so Asanga gave them a different reference point, an intimation of the inexpressible, non-dual experience of a blissful and transcendent reality. But I also think he’s implying that Asanga’s presentation makes Nagarjuna’s juggernaut more palatable to the materially comfortable without contradicting it.
