Dharmabyte: Vision and ViewOn Mon, 14 May, 2018 - 12:58
In Sanskrit or Pali, there’s no word that corresponds with the word ‘philosophy.’ There is one word that is sometimes translated as philosophy, the word darshana, which means ‘to see, a sight, a view, a vision.’
Dharsana represents direct experience, not something mediated by concepts. In Buddhism, the term is ‘drsti’ - which means a sight, a view, a perspective.
