Term Definition
Clear light
(tib.: ö-sel, skt.: prabhasvara) Clear light is the most subtle nature of mind, free of all obscurations. It continues with no beginning and no end, even during death and even into Buddhahood. It is described as equal to Buddha Nature.
 
Haribhadra explains: The nature, or essence, of mind, being unoriginated, is clear light; for the darkness of all conceptions of being is destroyed.

Words of Wisdom

"Realize that the nature of your mind is different from that of the flesh and bone of your physical body. Your mind is like a mirror, reflecting everything without discrimination. If you have understanding-wisdom, you can control the kind of reflection that you allow into the mirror of your mind."
- Lama Yeshe
