Comprehending your non-dual Self – that is beyond all dharmas

One who knows himself (atmanam) as nondual, he wisely knows both Buddha and Dharma.

And why?

He develops a personality (atmabhava) which consists of all dharmas [phenomena]; for all dharmas are fixed on the self in their own-being (atma-svabhava-niyata).

One who wisely knows the nondual dharma, wisely knows also the Buddhadharmas.

  • From the comprehension of the nondual dharma follows the comprehension of the Buddhadharmas and
  • From the comprehension of the self the comprehension of everything that belongs to the triple world.

‘The comprehension of self’, that is the Beyond of all dharmas …”

The Buddha in the “perfect insight” scripture, The Questions of Suvikrantavikramin, from Perfect Wisdom: The Short Prajnaparamita Texts, translated by Edward Conze, BPG, England, 2002).
