  1. Matthew Kapstein says: "The term 'objective generality' is defined in a great many ways by later Tibetan thinkers. Recent interpreters of tibetan scholastic documents have sometimes used here the term 'generic image', but I think we should be on our guard lest we assimilate the concept to one of mental imagery." (p.91)
