      It's not exactly what I asked, but close. I asked if you could describe masklessness. Thanks for the response Rinpoche.

      Rinpoche, this is an intricate and dificult problem, I think, is it kind of a riddle, to be or not to be, to be known or not, to have power or not, the power of be without mask and loose completly our make up identity??? and how to know? and who am I? Thank you!!

      Just possibly.....Behind the mask are both our fragile fragmented human nature, just the way we are, bound up in personal hidden self-identities, and enlightened Buddha Nature that is self-less liberation. The only difference between these two is that one knows itself, the other doesn't.

      lots of things create the maskless state, at least for a flash.
      remaining maskless in this human world?

      Mh. I'm thinking about Oscar Wilde. 'Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.' ——— Let's avoid kidding ourselves, a mask is not simply the tangible object we label as "mask" — nor make-up. I think we are very, very rarely mask-less (and do we know when we are?); that's our aim, but being mask-less is a looooong journey, it takes both bravery and discipline, and, and, and. And causes, and conditions — if the so called audience wants to see a mask, no matter what, they'll see a mask; if the so called audience wants to believe there's no mask, no matter what, they'll say you're mask-less. It's a matter of balancing belief and doubt — long, difficult and thrilling skilful strategy. Failures are included in the package ;)

      Well, if he doesn't know I wonder who does.

      Let's ask Eckhart Tolle.

      Good answer Rinpoche! I think only we can know when we are unmasked, and it could be different for everyone.
