Buddhism, Buddhist philosophy, logics, epistemology, liberation, meditative techniques


Studies in Indian Buddhist philosophy have been influenced by two different schools of thought: the first sees the development of Buddhist philosophy as a dialectical process, while the second one sees it as a continuous process. Here, we use the conceptual framework of the latter to illuminate certain philosophical themes present in the Buddhist epistemological school, especially the so-called theory of two truths. Our main goal is to show that the epistemological system of Dignāga in Dharmakīrti was strongly influenced by previous philosophical trends, and that, in order to understand it correctly, we must place it in the broader context of Buddhist theory and practice with its emphasis on the attainment of nirvāṇa. Thus, not only are there no inconsistencies between epistemological and spiritual elements in Indian Buddhism, they are, in fact, inextricably interconnected.
