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

"This world we see is a painting born from the brush of discursive thought, and within it or upon it nothing truly existent can be found. All things in samsara and nirvana are but mental labels and projections. Knowing this one knows reality; seeing this one sees most true."
- 2nd Dalai Lama
