Anyone who still thinks in terms of trumping has not even made it to
first base as a non-dualist. But don't feel bad. Non-dualism is such a
ludicrous parody of Buddhism that you're much better off not going
there. It's easier to stick with Madhyamaka (not Madhyamika) and to let
people imagine they have trumped you.

Anyone for a quick game of whist?
