True thinking is a dance with the sword of prajna. The dirty mess of conceptual proliferation is sliced open, and whatever jewels of knowledge and insight exist are strung into the necklace of understanding. The swordsman engages – he enters into the terrain of thinking, unafraid to touch ideas with his blade. But he never grasps an idea. He lets his sword slip through it, which does not cut it apart because it opens it up. The sword of prajna is not a weapon of destruction, it is a siddhi of animation, it brings thinking alive. True thinking dies in the coffin of grasping. The sword of prajna kills grasping and so it allows true thinking to happen.
