“‘Virtuous man, the multifarious phantasmal transformations of all the multibeings are generated from the wondrous mind of their thus-adventistic consummate enlightenment. It can be compared to the ethereal blossoms, which come into being, as it were, out of the space; and when the phantasmal blossoms vanish, the essence of the space would not go into deterioration along with the blossoms. Thus, the phantasmal minds of multibeings are to terminate along with the phantasmata; yet when all phantasmata die away, the enlightened mind would still remain impregnable. Nevertheless, when this enlightenment is maintained as an opposition to phantasm, such enlightenment would still be reduced to a sort of phantasm. If one professes that there is enlightenment, it would only evince that one has not yet been entirely detached from phantasm. On the other hand, if someone pronounces that there is no enlightenment, he would be entangled in the same phantasmal state as the former person. Consequently, only when all phantasmata have come to expiration, could it be deemed as the state of impregnability.’” “‘Virtuous man, all Bodhisattvas and latter-age multibeings must perforce depart from the phantasmal transformations, and all spurious delusive phenomena. If one is able to persist steadfastly in one’s intent for renunciation, in the meantime it behooves one to be aware that such an intent is also phantasmal; hence it should also be renounced.’” “‘Virtuous man, true awareness of the phantasmata shall enable one to depart from them forthwith; hence no other dexterous means need to be implemented for it. And on one’s departure from phantasmata, straightway would one become enlightened; hence, no gradual approaches would ever be in need, either. If only all Bodhisattvas and latter-age multibeings could cultivate in compliance with this means, they would be able to detach themselves from all phantasmata perpetually.’ At that juncture, the World-Venerated One, wishing to reiterate this import, divulged this Gatha: ‘Samantabhadra, it behooves thee to comprehend That ever since time immemorial, The phantasmal inanity of all the multibeings Has been constituted out of their consummate enlightenment, Which is akin to that of all the thus-adventists. This could be likened to the ethereal blossoms, Which rely on the space for manifesting their appearances. However, when the ethereal blossoms vanish, The ethereal space still remains unmoved as ever. All phantasmata arise from perceptions, And when these phantasmata expire The perceptivity is to stay as consummate as ever, For the perceptive mind is perpetually unchangeable. If only all the Bodhisattvas and latter-age multibeings Could constantly be detached from all phantasmata, And when all phantasms are renounced, It would be like igniting fire in a block of wood: When the wood is incinerated, the fire would also expire. As enlightenment per se is beyond graduality, So would it be the same with dexterous means.’”
