It would be nice if someone would come along

and find a method by which people could awaken.

Even the Buddha couldn't do that.”

I rejoice that Kim is enabling so many practitioners

to get awakened in such an approachable manner.

May the Dharma flourish for the benefit of all beings!”

As far as I know at present, the Two-Part Formula is as old and timeless as the teachings of the Buddha. The steps are a simple and experiential way of combining shamatha and vipashyana to reveal a timeless fact: that there never was any real ego: I, me or myself. Calling it awakening is fine. According to what I have learned from Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, he calls it dakme tokpey sherab, the insight of seeing egolessness, in the context of personal identity. It corresponds to the awakening of a hinayana practitioner.
