harm only when taken as an
end in itself.

insight when it holds
that the understanding given by it is the only category there is.

vaguely, as a mere
shadowy sentiment culled
from relgious terminology. This assertion may appear bold, perhaps, and is
likely to be met with disbelief, but that is not surprising, considering how
little is known about the relgious cultures of the East.
strangeness of the relgious cultures of the East is so arresting that our
