Douglas S. Duckworth's Mipam on Buddha-Nature characterises Mi-pham's (1846–1912) philosophy (or philosophical approach) as “dialectical monism.” We should instead characterise it with a neo-Sanskritism, namely, “Yuganaddhavāda” (zung 'jug tu smra ba), lest we get bogged down by the usage of the term “dialectical monism.” While Duckworth is absolutely right in identifying Mi-pham as a proponent of “dialectical monism,” there is still a need to define and refine our understanding of Mi-pham's position, offer plausible explanations for it, and present various argumentative strategies employed for it by Mi-pham, all based on critically assessed textual sources that engage the idea of “unity” (zung 'jug: yuganaddha).
