Example text

Since the mental poisons are eliminated, it has no attachment. 48 Buddha N a tu re Since the veil of the hindrances to knowledge is cleansed, it is in all ways unobstructed [with regard to complete insight]. Being free from its two [obstacles], it is suited for [samadhi] and thus relieved from the touch of coarse objects of contact. Since it is not something visible, it cannot be seen. Since it is free from features, it cannot be grasped. It is virtuous, [the dharmadhatu] being by nature pure, and it is free from stains, since pollution is abandoned.

Of these, the svabhavikakaya of the buddhas is to be known as having five characteristics and, if condensed, five qualities: It is uncreated and totally indivisible. The two extremes are completely abandoned. It is definitively freed from the three veils— the mental poisons and the obstructions to knowledge and meditative equipoise. It is unpolluted and not an [object of] thought. Being the field of the yogis and the dharmadhatu, being by essence pure, it is luminous clarity. The svabhavikakaya truly has the final and ultimate qualities of being unfathomable, countless, inconceivable, unequaled, and pure.

R oot T e x t 55 Delusion, idle talk, forgetfulness, mental agitation, ideation of duality, and indifferent equanimity: the Sage does not have any of these. His aspiration, diligence, and mindfulness, his utterly pure and unstained discriminative wisdom, his constant total release, and his primordial wisdom of liberation seeing all fields of the knowable do not suffer any impairment. His three activities are preceded [by primordial wisdom] and display themselves in its likeness. He manifests his vast definitive knowing, always unhindered in its vision of the three times.
