DHARMIC PHILOSOPHIES : THEORIES OF TRUTH
Philosophy in the New Age 

We see that there is nothing in these systems which is necessarily contradictory to the others, unless we are overly insistent upon the semantics of the presentation. Today we are living in an age of synthesis and reconciliation. We are no longer aiming at sharpening the intellect but increasing its grasp and moving beyond it. From this perspective philosophy must take on a new orientation. The philosophical age is over. What we need today is a new age of practical experimentation in the spiritual realm based upon an attitude of openness, freedom and a non-insistence upon any names or forms of the mind. 

The mind in its active mode is not the instrument of spiritual knowledge. Truth perception requires passivity of the mind. It is this which we must give priority to. While spiritual philosophies can help train our minds and give us an idea of what is to be accomplished we must be willing to set them aside to go to the real truth which no words can ever describe or delimit, positively or negatively.
