Two obscurations

(tib.: drib nyi) The two obscurations are the gross obscurations of disturbing thoughts (tib.: nyon drib) and the subtle obscurations to fully knowing all existence (tib.: she drib). They are also called passion obscurations and knowledge obscurations, the first being a hindrance mainly to deliverance from the cycles of existence, and the second one to omniscience. When the cessation of these is established on the mind, this is the purest happiness of full Enlightenment. Generally, one can say that the remedies for the two obscurations are the two collections.
