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

"Like me, the countless living beings have been wandering in cyclic existence. Many times they have been a parent to me and shone radiant kindness upon me. How unworthy not to respond to their sorrow. For the sake of all living beings we must strive in the practices bringing Enlightenment."
- 1st Dalai Lama
