Global short résumé of chapters 1-21 ∘

Our problem is our ignorance of the true nature of Reality as it is here & now; the solution is to realise the inconceivable unique true nature of Reality as it is here & now, of the karmic cycle, of all dharmas, and to act more and more in accord with this inconceivable Union of the Two Truths [U2T] about all dharmas without any exception. Realising mere-causality/karma or mere-emptiness is not enough.

Bodhisattvas should train in the Perfection of Wisdom, in the true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is here & now / Suchness, in the inconceivable Union of the Two Truths [U2T] free from all extremes & middle about all dharmas; not just training in appearances / causality / karma [T1], not just in mere-emptiness [T2], not just in both together [2T] as if different and in opposition, not with neither [1T] as if they were identical and a Comic Oneness.

The Buddha-Dharma is about first understanding, and then spontaneously non-dualistically non-conceptually directly perceiving / realising / experiencing the inconceivable unique all-pervading timeless unborn unconditioned unchanging unceasing pristine true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is here & now, the true nature & dynamic of all dharmas without any exception (body / physical, speech / conceptual, mind / mental; subject / relation / action / process, objects / phenomena; individual, collective, cosmic). It is the same Buddha-Dharma in all world systems in the ten directions, in all times. Realising this liberates one from all illusions / conditioning / karma / suffering. An enlightened being is one that is spontaneously aware of this and spontaneously acting in perfect accord with this without apprehending anything in absolute terms… Nothing in the Buddha-Dharma contradicts the true nature of dharmas.

[Union of the Two Truths about all dharmas / U2T:]
The true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is here & now is indescribable / inconceivable for our flawed dualistic conceptual body, speech and mind (s). But still we can use tools / adapted skillful means / concepts / ideas / views / methods / goals to point to it, to get to it. Example: A good pointer for the true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is is the inconceivable inseparability / interdependence / harmony / Union of the Two Truths free from all extremes & middle about all dharmas: the fact that all dharmas are like a Union of being empty of inherent existence [T2], not really arisen / existent / changing / ceasing in absolute terms <==> because of being conventionally dependently co-arisen (interdependent) relatively functional ever-changing impermanent appearances / tools / adapted skillful means [T1], merely labeled / imputed / imagined / created by the mind in dependence of its conditioning / karma [U3S], not completely non-arisen / non-existent / non-changing / non-ceasing in absolute terms. And vice versa; one aspect / truth implies / proves / enable the other (<==>) [U2T]. The fact that all dharmas are like illusions, reflections, mirages, dreams, echos, magical tricks: ‘There, but not there.’ That is, not really existent, not completely non-existent, not both together, not neither; not separate / different / multiple / dual, not identical / united / one / non-dual, not both together, not neither; not permanent / continuous / eternal, not impermanent / discontinuous / annihilated, not both together, not neither; not bound, not freed, not both together, not neither; not defilement / suffering / samsara, not purification / happiness / nirvana, not both together, not neither; not made / make, not unmade / unmake, not occasioning anything …; not ‘this’, not ‘non-this’, not both together, not neither – for whatever ‘this’ is. So there is nothing to find / perceive / apprehend / grasp / accept or reject or change / purify … in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively. Being aware of this inconceivable Union of the Two Truths is one of those ‘skillful means’ of the Perfection of wisdom; it is still just a pointer to the moon, not the moon itself; a pointer to the inconceivable.

The Buddha-Dharma, especially this text of the Prajnaparamita in 18k lines, offers a gradual path to get there – without anyone really getting anywhere, but still getting there –. Its main point is that a Bodhisattva need to use various possible adapted skillful means – like the six paramitas, the four immeasurable attitudes, the eighteen emptinesses, the hundred eight mental stabilisations, the thirty-seven dharmas on the side of awakening … up to the dharani gateways –, combined with the ‘Perfection of Wisdom with skillful means’; otherwise his activities / practices / teachings are just creating more conditioning / karma / deception / suffering, and are thus not leading to the knowledge of all aspects / omniscience / awakening / liberation.

One needs to complete / perfect / purify / transcend all dharmas / adapted skillful means / practices / teachings / karma (physical, conceptual, mental) / perceptions / actions / thoughts / concepts / ideas / views / knowledge / methods / goals … by combining them with more and more wisdom, with the ‘Perfection of Wisdom with skillful means’; by directly realising the Union of the Two Truths about them.

The path is thus caracterised by the Union of virtuous methods / merit <==> and wisdom; one supporting the other, like the two wings of a bird. The path consists of using more and more subtle adapted skillful means / virtuous methods [T1] <==> combined with more and more subtle wisdom [T2], using more and more subtle skillful means [T1] more and more in accord with the two inseparable aspects of the true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is here & now [U2T]; thus realising the Union of the Two Truths about more and more subtle dharmas. There comes a stage / level of purification where a Bodhisattva’s certainty about all this becomes irreversible / immovable; his awakening is guaranteed.

————————————————

Examples of skillful means associated with the Perfection of Wisdom:
Acting for the benefits of all sentient beings still stuck in samsara, not just for a few (bodhicitta), while being aware of the emptiness of inherent existence of all being [U2T];
– Without any attachment to (or rejection of) the unequal thought of awakening without outflows;
– Without any attachment to (or rejection of) the thought of all-knowing that is without outflow and does not belong [in the three realms];
Acting / producing / causing / practicing / teaching / using-dharmas conventionally / relatively without acting / producing / causing / practicing / teaching / using in absolute terms – thus more and more in accord with the two inseparable aspects of the Union of the Two  Truths [U2T];
Acting / practicing like an illusory person would train; this way one will reach the knowledge of all aspects;
without finding / perceiving any dharma / characteristic / property / attribute / quality / mark / relation / opposition / action / process … as inherently existing, independently of the mind, in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively; bodhisattvas do not see and do not not-see those dharmas;
without apprehending anything (dharmas, marks, emptiness, basis, ultimate reality / Ground, knower and knowledge of all aspects, awakening – goer, going, destination) in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively;  bodhisattvas do not apprehend and do not not-apprehend those dharmas;
without projecting / reifying / objectifying / mentally constructing anything in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively; bodhisattvas do not project and do not not-project those dharmas;
without any grasping / attachment / apprehension / obsession / fixation / reification / reference points / absolutes, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively;
without standing on anything in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively;  bodhisattvas stand without standing in the six perfections and other bodhisattva’s practices;
without settling down on anything in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively;  bodhisattvas do not settle down and do not not-settle-down on those dharmas;
without going forth or standing in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively;  bodhisattvas do not go forth or stand and do not not-go-forth or not-stand;
without taking up anything in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively;  bodhisattvas do not take up and do not not-take-up anything;
without grasping at any view in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively; Bodhisattvas have a view without having a view;
without falling for any opposite / extreme or middle about duality / triad / quad / etc. in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively; bodhisattvas do not use and do not not-use those extremes & middle;
by way of no causal sign and no absence of causal sign – without projecting / reifying / objectifying in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively;
without any basis in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively;
without finding / perceiving any three stages of becoming for any dharma – no real beginning / prior-limit / origination / production / dependent origination, middle / duration / change (defilement and purification), ending / later-limit / cessation / stopping – [T2], but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively [T1] ]U2T]; bodhisattvas do not see and do not not-see those dharmas;
by seeing all dharmas as like illusions, reflections, mirages, dreams, echos, magical tricks: ‘There, but not there.’ [U2T];
without accepting / affirming / seeking / adding anything in absolute terms,  / rejecting / changing anything in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively;
without rejecting / negating / abandoning / eliminating / stopping / subtracting / not-doing anything in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively;
without changing / improving / purifying / liberating anything in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively;
without judging / differentiating / discriminating / comparing / ranking / classifying in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively;
without trying to control everything in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively;
without trying to separate / polarize / oppose everything in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively;
without thinking / analysing / conceptualising / differentiating / describing / conceiving anything in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively; bodhisattvas do not think / analyse / conceptualise / differentiate / describe / conceive and do not not-think / not-analyse / not-conceptualise / not-differentiate / not-describe / not-conceive;
– with attention connected with the 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬𝙡𝙚𝙙𝙜𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙖𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙨 [𝙐2𝙏];
– Dedication as skillful means …
– Worshiping, serving, and attending on spiritual friends as skillful means …
– Etc.

Note: From chapter 10: Subhūti asked, "Lord, what skillful means do bodhisattva great beings who have newly set out in the vehicle have not to tremble, feel frightened, or become terrified when hearing this exposition?"

Note: From Chapter 66: "Lord, what are those skillful means, in possession of which bodhisattva great beings gain the knowledge of all aspects?"

Note: From chapter 78: Chapter 78 – Teaching the Skillful Means for the Purification of a Buddhafield.

Note: All of those ‘skillful means’ of the Perfection of Wisdom – to be used with all views / methods / practices / adapted skillful means / activities / goals – are efficient (they work) exactly because the true nature & dynamic of all dharmas is the Union of the Two Truths [U2T] – because all dharmas are all empty of inherent existence [T2] <==> but still conventionally dependently co-arisen & relatively functional [T1] –; because those ‘skillful means’ are more and more in accord with the inconceivable true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is, and helping use to get closer and closer to this inconceivable liberating Truth [U2T].

————————————————

More examples of skillful means associated with the Perfection of Wisdom:

without any di-vision between (or oneness of) the three spheres – ex. subject / actor / mind, relation / action / processes, object / result / phenomena –,
without any di-vision between (or oneness of) apparent opposites,
without any di-vision between (or oneness of) the two truths themselves,
without any di-vision between (or oneness of) the Ground and its manifestations.

[Acting while being aware of the two inseparable aspects of the true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is here & now:]  by not fixating on just one aspect / truth, not on both together, not on neither.

[Acting while being aware of the Union of the Two Truths about all dharmas / U2T:]  by not apprehending any dharma…; by being aware of the Union of the Two Truths about all dharmas [U2T].

[Acting while being aware of the Union of the three spheres / U3S:] by not entertaining any difference / separation / relation / opposition / dichotomy / duality in absolute terms, or identity / union / oneness / non-duality in absolute terms, or both or neither; between the three spheres – subject, relation / action, object – of any type of relation / action, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively. Being aware of the Union of the Two Truths about the three spheres [U2T-3S] – their interdependence and emptiness of inherent existence –. Examples of three spheres: actor, acting, result; goer, going, destination; perceiver, perception, perceived; knower, cognition, knowing; cause, causality, effect; producer, production, product; owner, ownership, possessions, acquirer, acquisition, acquired; characteristic, characterising, characterised; definition, defining, defined; thinker, thinking, thought. Reality as it is is not purely objective, purely subjective / mind-only, purely relational / action / process / karma, not a combination of those, not none of those.

[Acting while being aware of the Union of apparent opposites / Uopp:] by not entertaining any difference / separation / relation / opposition / dichotomy / duality in absolute terms, or identity / union / oneness / non-duality in absolute terms, or both or neither; between the apparent opposites of any duality / triad / quad / etc., but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively. Being aware of the Union of the Two Truths about apparent opposites [U2T-opp] – their interdependence and emptiness of inherent existence –. The Truth is never about accepting one side and rejecting the other(s), not vice versa, not about accepting all sides, not about rejecting all sides, but about realising the true nature & dynamic of all sides and their true relation / opposition. Reality as it is is beyond the opposites of all dualities / triads / quads / etc.

[Acting while being aware of the Union of the Two Truths about the two truths themselves / U2T-2T:] by not entertaining any difference / separation / relation / opposition / dichotomy / duality in absolute terms, or identity / union / oneness / non-duality in absolute terms, or both or neither; between the two truths – dependent origination and emptiness –, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively. Being aware of the Union of the Two Truths about the two truths themselves [U2T-2T] – their interdependence and emptiness of inherent existence –. The Truth is never about accepting one side / truth and rejecting the other(s), not vice versa, not about accepting both sides / truths, not about rejecting all sides / truths, but about realising the true nature & dynamic of all sides / truths and their true relation / opposition.

[Acting while being aware of the Union of the Ground and its manifestations / UGM:] by not entertaining any difference / separation / relation / opposition / dichotomy / duality in absolute terms, or identity / union / oneness / non-duality in absolute terms, or both or neither; between the Ground / Basis / Source / Dharmata / Buddha-nature / Genuine-emptiness / Suchness / true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is / Union of the Two Truths … and its spontaneous natural pristine manifestations / appearances, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively. Being aware of the Union of the Two Truths about the Ground and its manifestations [U2T-GM] – their interdependence and emptiness of inherent existence –.

[Purification of the buddhafield:] By perceiving everything as primordially equal, pure, perfect, divine, complete, liberated, free, enlightened, the inseparable three pure kayas, the true Buddha – in the non-dual sense of those terms (not this, not non-this, not both together, not neither).

By adopting the Middle Way in everything.

————————————————

By combining all of their activities / practices / teachings / adapted skillful means with this ‘Perfection of Wisdom with these skillful means’, Bodhisattvas act more and more in accord with the two inseparable aspects of the inconceivable true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is here & now, and get closer and closer to the knowledge of all aspects / omniscience, to complete awakening. This method is called ‘bringing the fruit into the path’: acting more and more in accord with the goal – even if there is nobody really going forth and ultimately really standing in a real knowledge of all dharmas. Still, it works, because the point is that everything is empty of inherent existence <==> but still dependently co-arisen & relatively functional.

The path consists of realising the Union of the Two Truths about more and more subtle dharmas / subject / relations / actions / objects / opposites, using more and more subtle skillful means and more and more subtle wisdom. One becomes a Buddha by perceiving / acting / practicing / teaching more and more like a Buddha because that creates the proper conditions for a possible ultimate spontaneous non-dualistic non-conceptual direct realisation / experience of the inconceivable true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is here & now. That is the liberating factor.

Résumé: 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙖𝙢𝙚 𝘽𝙪𝙙𝙙𝙝𝙖-𝘿𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖 — 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙋𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙒𝙞𝙨𝙙𝙤𝙢 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙨𝙠𝙞𝙡𝙡𝙛𝙪𝙡 𝙢𝙚𝙖𝙣𝙨 — 𝙞𝙨 𝙩𝙖𝙪𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙞𝙣 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙡𝙙 𝙨𝙮𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙢𝙨 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙩𝙚𝙣 𝙙𝙞𝙧𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨, 𝙖𝙩 𝙖𝙣𝙮 𝙥𝙤𝙞𝙣𝙩 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚.

All Buddhas / Everything is teaching this everywhere all the time;

we just need to be open to it by being fully present / mindful here & now.

.

It is ‘the same’ because it is a teaching of how to understand and then personally directly perceive / realise / experience 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙘𝙚𝙞𝙫𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝙪𝙣𝙞𝙦𝙪𝙚 𝙖𝙡𝙡-𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙫𝙖𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚𝙡𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝙪𝙣𝙗𝙤𝙧𝙣 𝙪𝙣𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙙𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙙 𝙪𝙣𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙪𝙣𝙘𝙚𝙖𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙥𝙧𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙚 𝙩𝙧𝙪𝙚 𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙚 & 𝙙𝙮𝙣𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙘 𝙤𝙛 𝙍𝙚𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙮 𝙖𝙨 𝙞𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙮𝙬𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙮𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚 – the true nature & dynamic of all dharmas everywhere at anytime as perceived by any being. This is also called the Ground / Basis / Source / Suchness / Dharmata / Buddha-nature / Genuine-emptiness / Union of the Two Truths … free from all extremes & middle.

.

It is a teaching on how to gradually realise this and act more and more in accord with this inconceivable true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is here & now everywhere at anytime. The path is the fruit.

.

It is a teaching on understanding / perceiving / acting more and more in accord with the two inseparable aspects of all dharmas, with the inconceivable Union of the Two Truths free from all extremes & middle: the Union of dependent origination [T1] & emptiness [T2] [U2T].

.

This Perfection of Wisdom (Prajnaparamita) is the liberating factor.

.

Meanwhile, to be efficient, all virtuous activities / views / methods / skillful means / paths / goals / dharmas … need to be gradually perfected / completed / purified by combining them with more and more of this wisdom of realising the Union of the Two Truths about all dharmas involved in all activities:

the inseparability / interdependence / harmony of the two aspects / truths of any / all dharmas:

the inconceivable inseparability / harmony / Union of being conventionally dependently co-arisen (interdependent) relatively functional ever-changing impermanent appearances / tools / adapted skillful means [T1], merely labeled / imputed by the mind in dependence of its conditioning / karma <==> and of being empty of inherent existence [T2]. One aspect alone is never sufficient; one aspect / truth implies / proves / enables the other (<==>) [U2T].

.

So it is like this: Reality as it is is continually trying to teach us the inconceivable true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is here & now. Once we finally directly perceive / realise / experience this then we are totally free from all of our illusions / conditioning / karma – free to use without using those apparent dharmas (physical, conceptual, mental) / tools / adapted skillful means / practices / methods / concepts / views / theories … without being slave to them because we know their true nature & dynamic. That is liberation / enlightenment / nirvana here & now.

.

Also, in a sense, everything is emanations of the Buddha trying to teach us the Truth out of compassion / interdependence; everything is manifestations inseparable from the pristine Ground / Basis / Source / Suchness.

It is this ‘ignorance’ that is the root cause of the whole karmic cycle / samsara, of all conditioning / karma / suffering.

.

PERFECTING / COMPLETING / PURIFYING:

For the sake of all beings, Bodhisattvas should 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙚 / 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩 / 𝙥𝙪𝙧𝙞𝙛𝙮 𝙖𝙡𝙡 valid concepts / ideas / views / activities / methods / practices / goals / all-dharmas (physical, conceptual, mental; subject, relation / action / process, object) 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙬𝙞𝙨𝙙𝙤𝙢 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙨𝙠𝙞𝙡𝙡𝙛𝙪𝙡 𝙢𝙚𝙖𝙣𝙨, by way of not apprehending / objectifying anything in absolute terms, using those dharmas without any attachment / fixation / absolutes – free from all extremes & middle – without being contaminated / conditioned by them.

.

NOT GRASPING AT ANY ABSOLUTE REALITY:

But Bodhisattvas should not grasp at that thought, not get attached to that thought,

.

.

Ex. PRACTICING WITHOUT PRACTICING:

Although Bodhisattvas know that all sentient beings are 𝙚𝙢𝙥𝙩𝙮 𝙤𝙛 𝙞𝙣𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙚𝙭𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 [𝙏2], not really originated / existent / changing / efficient / ceasing <==> bodhisattvas still make the vow to attain Buddhahood for the sake of all sentient beings, still 𝙜𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙗𝙤𝙙𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙞𝙩𝙩𝙖 𝙢𝙤𝙩𝙞𝙫𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣, 𝙥𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙘𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙞𝙭 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 [𝙏1] … because those beings (and all dharmas involved) are not completely non-originated / non-existent / non-changing / non-efficient / non-ceasing.

Bodhisattvas do not reject / negate / abandon those beings (or dharmas) for nirvana or mere-emptiness.

This way bodhisattvas 𝙖𝙘𝙩 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙖𝙘𝙘𝙤𝙧𝙙 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙨𝙚𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙗𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙮 / 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙙𝙚𝙥𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 / 𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙮 / 𝙐𝙣𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙏𝙬𝙤 𝙏𝙧𝙪𝙩𝙝𝙨 [𝙐2𝙏]: Union of conventionally dependently co-arisen relatively functional appearances / tools / adapted skillful means [T1], merely labeled / imputed by the mind, not completely non-existent <==> and their emptiness of inherent existence [T2], not really existent.

.

.

Ex. GIVING WITHOUT GIVING:

Bodhisattvas practice all forms of 𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗼𝘀𝗶𝘁𝘆 [T1], but without apprehending anything [T2] [U2T];

– without any grasping / attachment / apprehension / obsession / fixation / reification / reference points / absolutes;

– without falling into any extreme or middle about any duality / triad / quad / etc. involved;

– without accepting / affirming / seeking / adding / doing anything in absolute terms,

without rejecting / negating / abandoning / eliminating / stopping / subtracting / not-doing anything in absolute terms,

without changing / improving / purifying anything in absolute terms,

just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively if it helps someone get closer to the inconceivable liberating Truth [U2T];

– without any di-vision between the three spheres – ex. subject / actor / mind, relation / action / processes, object / result / phenomena –,

without any di-vision between apparent opposites,

without any di-vision between the two truths themselves,

without any di-vision between the Ground and its manifestations.

.

“𝘉𝘰𝘥𝘩𝘪𝘴𝘢𝘵𝘵𝘷𝘢𝘴 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘦𝘵𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘧𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘰𝘧 𝘨𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘯𝘨 [𝘛1 ] 𝘣𝘺 𝘸𝘢𝘺 𝘰𝘧 𝘯𝘰𝘵 𝘨𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘶𝘱 𝘢𝘯𝘺𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 [𝘛2] [𝘜2𝘛],

The same for the other perfections / paramitas and all other virtuous practices on the paths.

This way bodhisattvas 𝙖𝙘𝙩 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙖𝙘𝙘𝙤𝙧𝙙 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙨𝙚𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙗𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙮 / 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙙𝙚𝙥𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 / 𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙮 / 𝙐𝙣𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙏𝙬𝙤 𝙏𝙧𝙪𝙩𝙝𝙨 [𝙐2𝙏] 𝙪𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙡 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙮 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙤𝙗𝙩𝙖𝙞𝙣 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙚 𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜.

.

Ex. ACTING WITHOUT ACTING:

The same with any other activities of his body, speech and mind; ex. all practices, learning, teaching, perceiving, feeling, thinking, conceptualising, differentiating, fabricating.

Bodhisattvas always 𝙖𝙘𝙩 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜, while being fully aware of the inconceivable true nature & dynamic as it is of all dharmas involved in all activities,

aware of the Union of the Two Truths of all dharmas [U2T],

of the Union of the three spheres [U3S / U2T-3S],

of the Union of apparent opposites [Uopp / U2T-opp],

even of the Union of the Two Truths about the two truths themselves [U2T-2T],

even of the Union of the Two Truths about the Ground and its spontaneous natural unceasing manifestations [UGM / U2T-GM].

This way bodhisattvas 𝙖𝙘𝙩 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙖𝙘𝙘𝙤𝙧𝙙 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙨𝙚𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙗𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙮 / 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙙𝙚𝙥𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 / 𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙮 / 𝙐𝙣𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙏𝙬𝙤 𝙏𝙧𝙪𝙩𝙝𝙨 [𝙐2𝙏] 𝙪𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙡 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙮 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙤𝙗𝙩𝙖𝙞𝙣 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙚 𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜.

.

.

TRANSCENDING SAMSARA:

This is how samsara, the karmic cycle, is transcended / purified / transmuted into nirvana here & now:

by understanding and then directly realising its true nature & dynamic as it is here & now [U2T]:

ex. Union of the 12 links of dependent origination <==> and emptiness of inherent existence of all dharmas involved in the karmic cycle / samsara.

.

.

PERFECTING THE TWO TRUTHS:

The perfection of dependent origination [T1] is emptiness of inherent existence [T2];

the perfection of emptiness [T2] is dependent origination [T1].

One aspect / truth implies / proves / enables / perfects the other (<==>) [U2T].

These two aspects / truths are inseparable, interdependent, co-defined, co-relative, co-dependent, co-emergent, co-evolving, co-ceasing / co-transcended, non-dual, in harmony <==> thus themselves empty of inherent existence. [U2T-2T]

They are not different / separate / two / dual, not identical / united / one / non-dual, not both together, not neither, and there is no fifth. Meaning their true nature & dynamic is indescribable / inconceivable for our flawed conditioned dualistic conceptual mind(s); it has to be directly realised.

So there is no absolute to grasp here, just temporary imperfect tools / adapted skillful means / antidotes, just fingers pointing at the inconceivable true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is here & now, at an inconceivable Union of the two aspects.

.

.

BEING ABLE TO USE APPEARANCES / TOOLS WITHOUT BECOMING SLAVES TO THEM:

ACTING / PERCEIVING / PRACTICING WITHOUT ACTING / PERCEIVING / PRACTICING:

Bodhisattvas practice the Perfection of Wisdom while performing any practice like the six paramitas …

How?

𝘽𝙮 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙨𝙚𝙚𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙖𝙣𝙮 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙪𝙥𝙥𝙤𝙨𝙚𝙙𝙡𝙮 𝙞𝙣𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙡𝙮 𝙚𝙭𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙙𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖𝙨 (physical, conceptual, mental) involved in those practices, 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙣𝙤𝙣-𝙨𝙚𝙚𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙢 𝙚𝙞𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧. Ex. Not perceiving any inherently existing three spheres – subject / actor / self, relation / action / process, objects / result / phenomena; c̲a̲u̲s̲e̲,̲ ̲c̲a̲u̲s̲a̲l̲i̲t̲y̲,̲ ̲e̲f̲f̲e̲c̲t̲; perceiver, perception, perceived; knower, cognition, known; acquirer, acquisition, acquired –; o̲r̲i̲g̲i̲n̲a̲t̲i̲o̲n̲,̲ ̲d̲u̲r̲a̲t̲i̲o̲n̲ ̲/̲ ̲c̲h̲a̲n̲g̲e̲,̲ ̲c̲e̲s̲s̲a̲t̲i̲o̲n̲; existence or non-existence, d̲i̲f̲f̲e̲r̲e̲n̲c̲e̲ ̲o̲r̲ ̲i̲d̲e̲n̲t̲i̲t̲y̲, multiplicity or oneness; purity or impurity, not even d̲e̲p̲e̲n̲d̲e̲n̲t̲ ̲o̲r̲i̲g̲i̲n̲a̲t̲i̲o̲n̲ ̲[̲T̲1̲]̲ ̲a̲n̲d̲/̲o̲r̲ ̲e̲m̲p̲t̲i̲n̲e̲s̲s̲ ̲[̲T̲2̲]̲, not even the Union of the Two Truths [U2T], or the Ground and its manifestations, or the Perfection of Wisdom, or any ultimate Reality, or the three Jewels, or the three kayas.

And not rejecting / negating / not-seeing them either; not stopping with the realisation of mere-emptiness / nothingness, not grasping emptiness / nothingness and rejecting everything else.

.

Why? 𝘽𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝘽𝙤𝙙𝙝𝙞𝙨𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙫𝙖𝙨 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙐𝙣𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙏𝙬𝙤 𝙏𝙧𝙪𝙩𝙝𝙨 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙙𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖𝙨 [𝙐2𝙏] 𝙞𝙣𝙫𝙤𝙡𝙫𝙚𝙙; ex. about the five aggregates, the twelve sense fields, the eighteen elements, the twelve links of dependent origination, the four noble truths, the four stages of awakening, the three vehicles … space & time; about the three spheres of any relation / activity / process [U2T-3S], about the apparent opposites of any duality / triad / quad / etc. [U2T-opp], even about the two truths themselves [U2T-2T], and about the Ground and its manifestations [U2T-GM].

They know that they are all e̲m̲p̲t̲y̲ ̲o̲f̲ ̲i̲n̲h̲e̲r̲e̲n̲t̲ ̲e̲x̲i̲s̲t̲e̲n̲c̲e̲ [T2], not really originated / caused / existent / changing (increasing or decreasing; defiled or purified) / functional / ceasing <==> because they are all conventionally dependently co-arisen (interdependent) relatively functional ever-changing impermanent a̲p̲p̲e̲a̲r̲a̲n̲c̲e̲s̲ / tools / adapted skillful means [T1], m̲e̲r̲e̲l̲y̲ ̲l̲a̲b̲e̲l̲e̲d̲ ̲/̲ ̲i̲m̲p̲u̲t̲e̲d̲ by the mind in dependence of its conditioning / karma, not completely non-originated / non-caused / non-existent / non-changing / non-functional / non-ceasing.

And vice versa, one aspect / truth implies / proves / enables the other (<==>) [U2T].

.

𝘽𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝘽𝙤𝙙𝙝𝙞𝙨𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙫𝙖𝙨 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙙𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖𝙨 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚 𝙞𝙡𝙡𝙪𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨, reflections, mirages, dreams, echos, magical tricks: ‘There, but not there.’

N̲o̲t̲ ̲r̲e̲a̲l̲l̲y̲ ̲e̲x̲i̲s̲t̲e̲n̲t̲,̲ ̲n̲o̲t̲ ̲c̲o̲m̲p̲l̲e̲t̲e̲l̲y̲ ̲n̲o̲n̲-̲e̲x̲i̲s̲t̲e̲n̲t̲, not both together, not neither, and there is no fifth; not ‘this’, not ‘non-this, not both together, not neither', and there is no fifth – for whatever ‘this’ is.

Meaning the true nature & dynamic of all dharmas is indescribable / 𝙞𝙣𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙘𝙚𝙞𝙫𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 for our flawed dualistic conceptual conditioned mind(s); it is free from all extremes & middle, free from all dualistic conceptual proliferations, free from all defining limitations, free from all conditioning / karma (physical, conceptual, mental; individual, collective, cosmic).

Meaning there is n̲o̲ ̲i̲n̲d̲e̲p̲e̲n̲d̲e̲n̲t̲ ̲/̲ ̲u̲n̲i̲v̲e̲r̲s̲a̲l̲ ̲/̲ ̲a̲b̲s̲o̲l̲u̲t̲e̲ ̲/̲ ̲i̲n̲h̲e̲r̲e̲n̲t̲l̲y̲ ̲e̲x̲i̲s̲t̲i̲n̲g̲ ̲b̲a̲s̲i̲s̲ ̲t̲o̲ ̲d̲i̲f̲f̲e̲r̲e̲n̲t̲i̲a̲t̲e̲ ̲/̲ ̲d̲i̲s̲c̲r̲i̲m̲i̲n̲a̲t̲e̲ ̲/̲ ̲j̲u̲d̲g̲e̲ ̲t̲h̲e̲m̲ in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively.

Meaning there is 𝙣𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙤 𝙖𝙘𝙘𝙚𝙥𝙩 / affirm / seek / add / do in absolute terms, 𝙣𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙤 𝙧𝙚𝙟𝙚𝙘𝙩 / negate / abandon / eliminate / stop / subtract / not-do in absolute terms, 𝙣𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙤 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙚 / 𝙞𝙢𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙫𝙚 / 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙚 / 𝙥𝙪𝙧𝙞𝙛𝙮 in absolute terms, but just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively if it helps someone to get closer to the inconceivable liberating Truth [U2T].

So Bodhisattvas might as well perceive everything as 𝙥𝙧𝙞𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙙𝙞𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚𝙡𝙚𝙨𝙨, 𝙚𝙦𝙪𝙖𝙡, 𝙥𝙪𝙧𝙚, 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩, divine, free, enlightened, the inseparable three kayas, the true Buddha.

This way bodhisattvas 𝙖𝙘𝙩 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙖𝙘𝙘𝙤𝙧𝙙 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙨𝙚𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙗𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙮 / 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙙𝙚𝙥𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 / 𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙮 / 𝙐𝙣𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙏𝙬𝙤 𝙏𝙧𝙪𝙩𝙝𝙨 [𝙐2𝙏] 𝙪𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙡 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙮 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙤𝙗𝙩𝙖𝙞𝙣 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙚 𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜.

.

ACTING WITHOUT SETTLING DOWN ON ANYTHING:

Bodhisattvas practice all forms of activities / practices / teachings [T1], but 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙖𝙥𝙥𝙧𝙚𝙝𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙖𝙣𝙮𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 [T2] [U2T];

– without any grasping / attachment / apprehension / obsession / fixation / reification / reference points / absolutes;

– without falling into any extreme or middle about any duality / triad / quad / etc. involved;

– without accepting / affirming / seeking / adding / doing anything in absolute terms,

without rejecting / negating / abandoning / eliminating / stopping / subtracting / not-doing anything in absolute terms,

without changing / improving / purifying anything in absolute terms,

just conventionally / relatively / inter-subjectively if it helps someone get closer to the inconceivable liberating Truth [U2T];

– without any di-vision between the three spheres – ex. subject / actor / mind, relation / action / processes, object / result / phenomena –,

without any di-vision between apparent opposites,

without any di-vision between the two truths themselves,

without any di-vision between the Ground and its manifestations.

This way bodhisattvas 𝙖𝙘𝙩 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙖𝙘𝙘𝙤𝙧𝙙 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙨𝙚𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙗𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙮 / 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙙𝙚𝙥𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 / 𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙮 / 𝙐𝙣𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙏𝙬𝙤 𝙏𝙧𝙪𝙩𝙝𝙨 [𝙐2𝙏] 𝙪𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙡 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙮 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙤𝙗𝙩𝙖𝙞𝙣 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙚 𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜.

.

ACTING WITH FULL AWARENESS OF THE TRUE NATURE & DYNAMIC OF REALITY AS IT IS:

Bodhisattvas always 𝙖𝙘𝙩 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙬𝙝𝙞𝙡𝙚 𝙗𝙚𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙘𝙚𝙞𝙫𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝙩𝙧𝙪𝙚 𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙚 & 𝙙𝙮𝙣𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙘 𝙖𝙨 𝙞𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙙𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖𝙨 involved in all activities,

aware of the U̲n̲i̲o̲n̲ ̲o̲f̲ ̲t̲h̲e̲ ̲T̲w̲o̲ ̲T̲r̲u̲t̲h̲s̲ of all dharmas [U2T],

of the U̲n̲i̲o̲n̲ ̲o̲f̲ ̲t̲h̲e̲ ̲t̲h̲r̲e̲e̲ ̲s̲p̲h̲e̲r̲e̲s̲ [U3S / U2T-3S],

of the U̲n̲i̲o̲n̲ ̲o̲f̲ ̲a̲p̲p̲a̲r̲e̲n̲t̲ ̲o̲p̲p̲o̲s̲i̲t̲e̲s̲ [Uopp / U2T-opp],

This way bodhisattvas 𝙖𝙘𝙩 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙖𝙘𝙘𝙤𝙧𝙙 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙨𝙚𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙗𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙮 / 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙙𝙚𝙥𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 / 𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙮 / 𝙐𝙣𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙏𝙬𝙤 𝙏𝙧𝙪𝙩𝙝𝙨 [𝙐2𝙏] 𝙪𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙡 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙮 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙤𝙗𝙩𝙖𝙞𝙣 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙚 𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜.

.

It is by acting / perceiving / thinking / practicing / teaching … like that, using skillful means like that, that Bodhisattvas train in the Perfection of Wisdom.

Résumé / analysis of this chapter:

.

𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙋𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙒𝙞𝙨𝙙𝙤𝙢 𝙞𝙨 𝙜𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩, vast, special, best, superb, sublime, unsurpassed, unrivaled, unequaled, calm & gentle, matchless, incomparable, uncrushable, [indescribable, inconceivable, unique, all-pervading, timeless, unborn, unconditioned, unchanging, unceasing, pristine,] space-like, 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙗𝙤𝙩𝙝 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙜𝙤𝙤𝙙 𝙦𝙪𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙚𝙨 [𝙏1] 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙚𝙢𝙥𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙨 [𝙏2] [𝙐2𝙏] – the perfection of the two inseparable aspects / truths of all dharmas –.

.

𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙋𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙒𝙞𝙨𝙙𝙤𝙢 𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙣𝙨𝙢𝙪𝙩𝙚𝙨 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙘𝙚𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙙 𝙙𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖𝙨 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙤 '𝙚𝙦𝙪𝙖𝙡 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙪𝙣𝙚𝙦𝙪𝙖𝙡' – simply by becoming fully aware of their inconceivable true nature & dynamic as it is here & now [U2T / U3S / Uopp / U2T-2T].

.
𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙋𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙒𝙞𝙨𝙙𝙤𝙢 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙨 / 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙚𝙨 / 𝙥𝙪𝙧𝙞𝙛𝙞𝙚𝙨 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙙𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖𝙨 / 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙘𝙚𝙥𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 / 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬𝙡𝙚𝙙𝙜𝙚 / 𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 / 𝙥𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙘𝙚𝙨 / 𝙩𝙚𝙖𝙘𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙨 – 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙠𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖.

.
The Perfection of Wisdom is directly perceiving / realising / experiencing the inconceivable true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is here & now; and acting more and more in accord with it.
It is enlightened perception / knowledge / activity / freedom / power.

.

Therefore, bodhisattva great beings who want to complete / perfect / purify all dharmas should train in the Perfection of Wisdom – should train in the inconceivable Union of the Two Truths [U2T] free from all extremes & middle about all dharmas – without apprehending anything, without settling down on anything.

.

Bodhisattvas should stand without standing in the six perfections and other bodhisattva’s practices.

The Perfection of Wisdom should be taken up by way of no causal sign and no absence of causal sign, taken up without taking it up.

This way bodhisattvas 𝙖𝙘𝙩 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙖𝙘𝙘𝙤𝙧𝙙 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙨𝙚𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙗𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙮 / 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙙𝙚𝙥𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 / 𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙮 / 𝙐𝙣𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙏𝙬𝙤 𝙏𝙧𝙪𝙩𝙝𝙨 [𝙐2𝙏] 𝙪𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙡 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙮 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙤𝙗𝙩𝙖𝙞𝙣 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙚 𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜.

Résumé / analysis of this chapter:

.

Even though the same Perfection of Wisdom is available in all the world systems in the ten directions, at any point in time, it is not ‘acceptable / welcome’ for all sentient beings. One has to be ready / open minded to be able to receive it, to be able to accept it without too much resistance.

Our mind(s) is/are craving for invariants / certainties / absolutes / extremes / control / things to do or not-do / relations & oppositions; that is how it is ‘programmed / conditioned’ to work. And that is perfectly normal / OK; that will not change. We just need to be fully aware of this functioning, and of the true nature & dynamic of its fabrications in order to be ‘not-unconsciously-slaves’ to them / liberated.

Résumé / analysis of this chapter:

.

The Perfection of Wisdom teaches the inconceivable true nature of all dharmas, and how to act more and more in accord with it, thus creating less and less conditioning / karma / suffering for self & others.

.

The Perfection of Wisdom teaches that the true nature & dynamic of all dharmas – starting with the bodhisattva – is like an inseparability / interdependence / harmony / Union of two aspects / truths:

Résumé / analysis of this chapter:

.

𝙏𝙧𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙮 𝙦𝙪𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣: If Bodhisattvas do not find all dharma, do not apprehend all dharma, do not stand in any dharma, do not see all dharma (physical, conceptual, mental) – because all dharmas are mere designations without any solid basis, and are empty of inherent existence / not really existent, with no real origination / coming, duration / change, cessation / going, with no real characteristic / properties / attributes / marks / qualities / relations / oppositions –
𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙬𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙝 𝘽𝙤𝙙𝙝𝙞𝙨𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙫𝙖 𝙩𝙚𝙖𝙘𝙝𝙚𝙨 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝘿𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙖 𝙩𝙤 𝙬𝙞𝙘𝙝 𝙙𝙞𝙨𝙘𝙞𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙨 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙥𝙪𝙧𝙥𝙤𝙨𝙚?
And how to differentiate between dharmas, and between what is right and what is wrong?

.

𝘼𝙣𝙨𝙬𝙚𝙧: Emptiness does not mean that all dharmas (physical, conceptual, mental) are complete non-originated / non-produced / non-caused, complete non-existence / non-evolving / non-changing / non-functional, and non-ceasing. That would be grasping at the extreme of non-existence / mere-emptiness / nothingness / nihilism.

Appearances are not one thing, and emptiness another – one being superior to the other.

The perfection of one truth is the other aspect / truth.
Emptiness [T2 - 2nd truth] is inseparable from dependent origination / relative functionality / appearances [T1 - 1st truth] [U2T - Union of the Two Truths].

The Two Truths are ‘inseparable’, ‘interdependent’, ‘in harmony’, ‘in Union’;

not as two things coming together, but as like the two faces of the same coin.

The two truths are not different / separate / multiple / dual, not identical / united / one / non-dual, not both together, not neither, and there is no fifth.

The two truths are both empty of inherent existence <==> because themselves conventionally dependently co-arisen (interdependent) relatively functional ever-changing impermanent appearances / tools / adapted skillful means, merely labeled / imputed by the mind. And vice versa; one aspect / truth about the two truths implies / proves / enables the other [U2T-2T].

So one should not grasp at any causality / appearances [T1] (naïve realism), not at emptiness [T2] (nihilism), not at both truths together [2T] (a form of dualism), nor at neither of them [1T] (a form of monism / oneness); nor at the Union of the Two Truths [U2T] or any other Ultimate Reality / Ground.
These are all mere temporary imperfect concepts / tools / adapted skillful means / antidotes / fingers pointing at the moon, not the moon itself. Useful,  but turning into poison if grasped as an absolute.

not dependently co-arisen [T1], not empty of inherent existence [T2], not both truths together [2T], not neither of the two truths [1T]; so we call this: the inconceivable Union of the Two Truths.

Meaning the true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is here & now, of all dharmas, is indescribable / inconceivable, beyond all extremes & middle, beyond all dualistic conceptual proliferations, beyond all defining limitations, beyond all conditioning / karma.

1) 𝘼𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 / 𝙥𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙘𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙚 𝙞𝙜𝙣𝙤𝙧𝙖𝙣𝙘𝙚 of the inconceivable true nature & dynamic of all dharmas, thus being slaves to them: perceiving those dharmas (physical, conceptual, mental) as inherently existing with inherently existing characteristics properties / attributes / qualities and relations / oppositions, thinking objects / phenomena / the-world exist objectively / independently of the subject / mind, apprehending them, settling down on them, differentiating / discriminating between them in absolute terms, accepting this while rejecting that in absolute terms, doing this and not doing that in absolute terms, seeking this while abandoning that in absolute terms, unconsciously projecting / reifying / objectifying in absolute terms all the time – doing all this unconsciously / automatically without realising that it keeps us prisoners / slaves to a limitless conditioning / karmic cycle that will never bring us peace and satisfaction. 𝙋𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙘𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙞𝙭 𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙩𝙖𝙨 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙨𝙠𝙞𝙡𝙡𝙛𝙪𝙡 𝙢𝙚𝙖𝙣𝙨 is a little bit like this; just a little bit better. But it is still too dualistic, too absolutist, too extreme, with too much grasping / attachment / projection / apprehension – too much love for dhamas.

This is the Bodhisattva path: to gradually perfect this ability – the six paramitas…, this Perfection of Wisdom with skillful means – until this is perfected with complete liberation / awakening.

𝕊𝕦𝕓𝕥𝕝𝕖 𝕟𝕠𝕥𝕖𝕤:
-

1) Bodhisattvas practice using various adapted skillful means like: taking refuge, generating Bodhicitta, developing the four immeasurable attitudes, practicing the six perfection (paramitas), etc.

-

2a) They combine those adapted skillful means with more and more wisdom concerning the inconceivable true nature & dynamic of all dharmas involved –; with the wisdom of understanding / perceiving / realising the Union of the Two Truths about all dharmas involved [U2T], the Union the Two Truths about the three spheres involved [U2T-3S], the Union of the Two Truths about all apparent opposites / dualities involved [U2T-opp], even the Union of the Two Truths about the two truths themselves [U2T-2T], etc.

-

2b) They practice combining those adapted skillful means with more and more Perfection of Wisdom
using various adapted skillful means like:
– not apprehending anything in absolute terms as much as possible,
– not projecting / reifying / objectifying anything in absolute terms as much as possible,
– not settling down on an dharmas in absolute terms as much as possible,
– not finding / perceiving any supposedly inherently existing dharmas as much as possible,
– not asserting any dharma in absolute terms as much as possible,
– acting conventionally / relatively without acting in absolute terms as much as possible;
– acting without any attachment / fixation / absolutes,
without falling in any extreme or middle,
without any di-vision between the three spheres – subject, relation / action, object –;
etc.

-

3) Iteration: And they also combine more and more ‘Perfection of Wisdom with skillful means’
to those last skillful means associated with the Perfection of Wisdom.
Meaning they do not get attached to those more subtle skillful means either,
and thus stay away from all extremes & middle, even the most subtle ones.
– Ex. ‘not finding / perceiving’ becomes ‘not finding / perceiving, not non-finding / non-perceiving, not both together, not neither';

– ‘not apprehending’ becomes ‘not apprehending, not non-apprehending, not both together, not neither';

– ‘not settling down’ becomes ‘not settling down, not non-settling down, not both together, not neither';

– ‘not projecting / reifying / objectifying’ becomes ‘not projecting / reifying / objectifying, not non-projecting / non-reifying / non-objectifying, not both together, not neither';

– ‘not asserting’ becomes ‘not asserting, not non-asserting, not both together, not neither';

– ‘not thinking’ becomes ‘not thinking, not non-thinking, not both together, not neither';
– ‘not conceptualising’ becomes ‘not conceptualising, not non-conceptualising, not both together, not neither',
– the same for all skillful means associated with the Perfection of Wisdom.
-

This gradual path thus consists of using more and more subtle adapted skillful means / methods / antidotes / tools  <==> combined with more and more subtle wisdom – Union of the Two Truths about more and more subtle dharmas – until one reaches complete awakening.

One can use Madhyamaka logical reasoning to understand the Union of the Two Truths about all dharmas [U2T / U2T-3S / U2T-opp / U2T-2T]. That is a good useful pointer to the inconceivable.
𝘼𝙣𝙙 𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙖𝙡𝙨𝙤 𝙣𝙚𝙚𝙙𝙨 𝘁𝗼 𝗮𝗰𝘁 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝗮𝗰𝗰𝗼𝗿𝗱 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗰𝗲𝗶𝘃𝗮𝗯𝗹𝗲 𝘁𝗿𝘂𝗲 𝗻𝗮𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗥𝗲𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗮𝘀 𝗶𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 & 𝗻𝗼𝘄, with the inconceivable Union of the Two Truths free from all extremes & middle [U2T]. T̲h̲a̲t̲ ̲i̲s̲ ̲t̲h̲e̲ ̲p̲u̲r̲p̲o̲s̲e̲ ̲o̲f̲ ̲a̲l̲l̲ ̲o̲f̲ ̲t̲h̲o̲s̲e̲ ̲l̲i̲t̲t̲l̲e̲ ̲s̲k̲i̲l̲l̲f̲u̲l̲ ̲m̲e̲a̲n̲s̲ ̲l̲i̲k̲e̲: not finding / perceiving those dharmas in absolute terms; acting while not apprehending anything in absolute terms, without any attachment / fixation / absolutes, without projecting / reifying / objectifying anything, without settling down on anything in absolute terms, without falling into any extreme or middle, without accepting / rejecting / changing anything in absolute terms, without getting attached to any dharma, without becoming slaves to any dharma (physical, conceptual, menatal; subject, relation / action, objects; etc.).
By acting more and more in accord with the inconceivable true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is here & now, with the inconceivable Union of the Two Truths, one creates the proper conditions to directly perceive / realise / experience it here & now. Without those little skillful means one is lost in the limitless self-conditioning / karmic cycle.
This is called practicing the perfection of wisdom with attention connected with the 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬𝙡𝙚𝙙𝙜𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙖𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙨 [𝙐2𝙏] – not connected with śrāvakas and pratyekabuddhas, not connected to absolutes & dualities.

So, one needs to always practice the five perfections… by combining them with the Perfection of Wisdom with skillful means.

And vice versa; one aspect / truth implies / proves / enables the other (<==>) [U2T].

These two aspects / truths -- appearance and emptiness –, like the apparent opposites of any duality / triad / quad / etc., are 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙙𝙞𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙣𝙩 / 𝙨𝙚𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙚 / 𝙢𝙪𝙡𝙩𝙞𝙥𝙡𝙚 / 𝙙𝙪𝙖𝙡, 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙡 / 𝙪𝙣𝙞𝙩𝙚𝙙 / 𝙤𝙣𝙚 / 𝙣𝙤𝙣-𝙙𝙪𝙖𝙡, not both together, not neither, and there is no fifth; not ‘this’, not ‘non-this’, not both together, not neither.

Résumé / analysis of this chapter:

.

Because the inconceivable true nature & dynamic as it is of all dharmas (ex. thoughts, concepts, ideas, views, theories) is the inconceivable Union of the Two Truths [U2T] – dependent origination and emptiness –, because all dharmas are like illusions, reflections, mirages, dreams, echos, magical tricks: ‘There, but not there.’,

   [2] those beings 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙨𝙚𝙩 𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙞𝙣 𝙖 𝙂𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩 𝙑𝙚𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙡𝙚,

   [3] and those beings 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙢𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙤𝙣 𝙖 𝙂𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩 𝙑𝙚𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙡𝙚.”

It is in this sense, Lord, that bodhisattvas are said to be great beings."

.

.

.

[1] "𝙏𝙤 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙚𝙭𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙩 𝙨𝙖𝙞𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙗𝙤𝙙𝙝𝙞𝙨𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙫𝙖 𝙜𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩 𝙗𝙚𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙨 𝙖𝙧𝙚 '𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙚𝙙 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙜𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩 𝙖𝙧𝙢𝙤𝙧'?"

.

Here Bodhisattvas practice without practicing the six paramitas … for the sake of all sentient beings without any differentiation / discrimination in absolute terms; not for a partial number of beings; not for personal gain or liberation.

.

They practice with attention not connected with śrāvakas and pratyekabuddhas (with absolutism and dualism), but with attention connected with the knowledge of all aspects [U2T / U2T-3S / U2T-opp / U2T-2T / U2T-GM], and, having made that wholesome root into something shared in common by all beings, grow it into unsurpassed, perfect, complete awakening.

.

They do not dedicate it to the level of śrāvakas or pratyekabuddhas, but dedicate it to unsurpassed, perfect, complete awakening.

.

They perceive all dharmas as like illusions, reflections, mirages, dreams, echos, magical tricks: 'There, but not there.' [U2T].

They practice [T1] without falsely projecting and apprehending any dharmas [T2] associated with the six paramitas…, do not grasp a causal sign of those, because their true nature & dynamic as is is is the Union of the Two Truths [U2T].

.

.

This way Bodhisattvas standing in each of the six perfections perfect all six perfections.

.

"Furthermore, Bodhisattva great beings become absorbed in the concentrations but do not dwell on the experience, are not captured by them, and are not reborn under their power.
They become absorbed in the immeasurables and formless absorptions but do not dwell on the experience, are not captured by them, and are not reborn under their power.

.

Bodhisattva great beings dwell in a vision of isolation and dwell in a vision of emptiness, signlessness, and wishlessness in the concentrations, the immeasurables, and the formless absorptions [T1] but still do not actualize the very limit of reality [T2] [U2T].

Taking refuge, Generating Bodhicitta, Developing the four immeasurable attitudes, practicing the six paramitas,

Concentrations: They dwell in the four jhanas.

Immeasurables: They dwell having pervaded the ten directions of a world that is vast because of the dharma-constituent and that extends as far as the space element with a vast, inclusive, infinite, non-dual mind endowed with love, compassion, joy & equanimity, without enmity, unrivaled, not harmful, and well cultivated.

Formless absorptions: They attain and dwell in the station of endless space, the station of endless consciousness, the station of nothing-at-all, and the station of neither perception nor non-perception.

When bodhisattvas who practice the six perfections set out into and arise from those concentrations, immeasurables, and formless absorptions, they make those wholesome roots into something shared in common by all beings as well, and they grow them into unsurpassed, perfect, complete awakening.

They attain great stabilization in those.

Preceded by great compassion, they explain and demonstrate, illuminate, reveal, and make clear the concentrations, immeasurables, and formless absorptions to others in order to destroy the afflictions of all beings, properly demonstrating the experience of and faults in them, and the release from them.

They do not provide an opportunity for the production of other thoughts connected with śrāvaka thoughts or with pratyekabuddha thoughts.

Then fully meditating on the thirty-seven dharmas on the side of awakening, fully meditating on the meditative stabilizations on emptiness, signlessness, and wishlessness that are gateways to liberation, and fully meditating on the powers, the fearlessnesses, up to and the eighteen distinct attributes of a buddha.

Bodhisattva great beings stand in those concentrations, immeasurables, and formless absorptions without mixing them up and do not hanker after the śrāvaka level or the pratyekabuddha level, or both of them, but tolerate and accept the knowledge of all aspects.

They do not apprehend the six perfections, they do not apprehend a bodhisattva, and they do not apprehend attention.

They meditate on their subject with thoughts connected with the knowledge of all aspects without any admixture because of the investigation of the meditation, and that meditation, again, by way of not apprehending anything.

Why? Because all dharmas – including the three spheres of any relation / action / causality / production, the apparent opposites of any duality, even the two truths themselves – are empty of inherent existence [T2] <==> because dependently co-arisen / interdependent [T1], merely labeled / imputed by the mind [U3S]. And vice versa; one aspect / truth implies / proves / enables the other (<==>) [U2T].

Because the knowledge of all aspects is not made, is not unmade, and does not occasion anything, and those beings for whose sake bodhisattva great beings are armed with great armor are not made, not unmade, and do not occasion anything either. So bodhisattvas act without acting, without any attachment / fixation / absolutes (just conventional / relative / inter-subjective concepts, ideas, truths, views, methods, practice, milestones, goals, teachings …).

It is because all dharmas are isolated (from the words and signs for things?), calm, empty, signless, wishless, do not occasion anything, and are not produced that they are not bound and are not freed. (see 10.30)

– [1] 𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙞𝙭 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨:
The perfection of giving, perfection of morality, perfection of patience, perfection of perseverance, perfection of concentration, and perfection of wisdom.

.

The five perfections are always combined with the ‘perfection of wisdom with skillful means’; and vice versa. Practicing one perfection is practicing them all.

Thus acting / practicing more and more in accord with the inconceivable true nature & dynamic of Reality as it is here & now, with the inconceivable Union of the Two Truths [U2T] free from all extremes & middle. That is why they are called Bodhisattva Great Beings armed with great armor, having set out in a Great Vehicle, having mounted on a Great Vehicle.
