1.6The Blessed One said, “Padmaśrīgarbha, there is one quality that, if a bodhisattva great being possesses it, renders irreversible his progress to unsurpassed and completely perfect awakening, and grants him the five types of clairvoyance and the illusory absorption. Moreover, as soon as he attains that absorption, he emanates whatever bodies in whatever way will perfect sentient beings’ roots of virtue, teaches the Dharma according to sentient beings’ inclinations, and quickly awakens to unsurpassed and completely perfect buddhahood.
“What is that single quality? Padmaśrīgarbha, the bodhisattva must not abide anywhere in the three realms, neither abiding internally nor externally. As he does not abide, he will see reality. As he sees reality, he will unite with reality. As he unites with reality, nothing will impede his mind. As nothing impedes his mind, he will engage in authentic conduct.
1.7“What does it mean to engage in authentic conduct? It is as follows. [F.212.a] All phenomena arise in dependence. There is no phenomenon that can remain constantly. All phenomena arise from circumstances. There is no phenomenon that arises without circumstances. Any phenomenon that arises in dependence is unborn. Therefore all phenomena are unborn. To realize that all phenomena are unborn is to know how to practice the bodhisattva’s path. In this way, one attains the basis for benefiting all beings and can proceed with a compassionate outlook. With such conviction, one comes to understand that all phenomena are illusory. All phenomena are magically manifest because they are imputed. Those imputations are also utterly empty. The realization that all phenomena are empty is the attainment of the illusory absorption.
“As soon as one attains this absorption, one emanates whatever bodies in whatever way will perfect sentient beings’ roots of virtue, and teaches the Dharma according to sentient beings’ inclinations. In this way, one quickly awakens to unsurpassed and completely perfect buddhahood.”
