Example text

8 A third approach, which will be examined in this essay, is to say something which is positive but false, or at least not entirely true. We might call this the upayic method, since it uses upayakaufa/ya (skilful means). Upaya is well known in Mahayana Buddhism, but it is not so well known that, at least at one point in its history, Christianity employed a similar technique, which has come to be known as the economic method. 9 Economy, for the Christians of Alexandria in the third century CE, existed in tension with 'reserve' or 'the discipline of the secret' 4 5 6 7 8 9 Draft translation by Richard Robinson, privately circulated.

We will first discuss the notion that some texts in both Buddhism and Christianity are intentionally vague, and look at how this obscurity is supposed to uncover the truth by means of parables and similes. Then, we will note how these 'false truths' are arranged, for both traditions, in grades, with a corresponding list of graded auditors.
