It is an uprooting of the emotional afflictions in my mind,

so that they never arise in the future

and are purified within the expanse of suchness.

 

“Once the seeds are scorched, the fruit cannot arise.”

The final result of the exhaustion of the afflictive emotions

of the three realms of cyclic existence

is simply stainless awareness . That is liberation.

―Jetsun Taranatha
