'What I see is there' is fact or shraddhA ?
You are presenting it as fact. This clearly shows that you have shraddhA in
Why this is not a fact ?
Because eyes generate knowledge of pot,etc. only and they don't produce the
determination 'what I see is there'.
What you are missing here is that word 'knowledge' doesn't denote pramANa
I leave it for others to show to you.


Shreeman - will you be kind enough to explain to me what you meant by the above. 

Granted that the transactional reality is not absolute reality, but pramANa can only opearate at the transactional level i.e. at the naama ruupa level. I did not go through the complete process of how perception occurs here as it was discussed in the knowledge series. However your statements are contrary to the pratyaksha pramANa that I know where tripuTi - pramaata-prameya-pramANa operate; and would be happy to learn from you if you can explain to me in a way that I can understand.


Hari Om!
