Sharp Vision/ Prajna Vision

We could say that the Practicing Lineage is the guardian of the buddhadharma, not only in Tibet alone but in the rest of the world. Someone should at least have a critical view of how things should happen, how things shouldn’t happen.That particular sharp vision, traditionally known as “prajna vision,” is very important. And that is a very lively situation, a living situation, which still is up-to-date. In fact, that is why we are here. The Practicing Lineage is the most pure, and is unhampered by any kind of spiritual materialism. Instead of just viewing this lineage from a purely historical point of view, we should realize that this experience of lineage can take place in ourselves.

From The Mishap Lineage: Transforming Confusion into Wisdom,  Chapter One.
