Buddhist principles: Dorje Pa Mu tells us that studying the principles (Buddhist Studies) but not practicing or, conversely, practicing but not understanding the principles or concepts are both superficial approaches to the Buddha-dharma. Mastery of principles will cause one to attain a certain understanding or awareness and enable one to cultivate oneself accordingly. To realize enlightenment, it is absolutely necessary for one to have thoroughly understood the principles, but one must not be attached to a mere understanding of the principles.
