Amod Lele prays to Manjushri even though he doesn’t believe in him.
I ask what if Manjushri believes in Amod Lele? At what point does the ‘penny prayer’ drop and the weighing scales tell him his true weight. The penny prayer drops when a good thump of ‘de profoundis’ is delivered with it.
How does one move from a position of rational unbelief or agnostic reservation to belief? Is it a negotiable fissure that is spannable by rational devices? My feeling is that such would be non-confirming and subjective bricolage. No, one must be un-benighted by a tap of the sword of Manjushri.
