Example text

They should announce and make known that if those Lords, the Buddhas, were not to enjoin the highest attainment on that Bodhisattva he would enter into full nirvana [and disappear from the world]. W hat, though, is this full nirvana? It could not be the full nirvana of Listeners because right from the production of the thought [of enlightenm ent] they have banished to a great distance all the trains of thought that cause desire for the Listener vehicle. [Qualm ]: Still, it could not be the full nirvana of a Buddha because they have not yet eliminated w hat is elim inated by [the path of] meditation.

Still, it is the natural outcom e (dharm ata) of [the way those to be gods] turned over [their] w holesom e roots; it is the natural outcom e of the fact that dharm as are depen­ dent originations m arked by the specifically fabricated state they find them selves in. Taking this as our authority, therefore, the gods of the heavens of the Four G reat K ings are so called because the Four G reat K ings are their rulers. The gods of the heavens of the T hirty-T hree are so called because the thirty-three sim ultaneously done virtues are produced there.

Then there is the awakening to all aspects, when culmination is at­ tained, serial, awakening in an instant, and the Truth Body. [Ten topics figure in the description of] the knowledge of all aspects of the Sage: production of the thought, preceptual advice, four aids to penetration, the substratum of the prac­ tice the nature of which is the dharma element, objective support, aim, the activities of putting on armor and setting out, and the accumulations and emergences. , [that are its causes], certain Learner and Rhinoceros paths, the path of seeing of the wise Bodhisattvas (greatly beneficial on account of qualities belonging to this and the other world), and their path of meditation [detailed in terms of] function, belief, praises, commendations, and glorifica­ tions, dedicatory and admiring attitudes of the highest sort, and consummation and complete purity.
