Two Truths


Geshe Lobsang Dawa, a teacher at the Buddhist School of Dialectics in Dharamsala explains the Buddhist concept of Two Truths. He says that every existing thing and every phenomena has two natures: a conventional truth and an ultimate truth, or a relative aspect and an absolute aspect. The absolute or ultimate truth is the inherent nature of how things really are. The conventional or relative is how things appear.
