A Mere Indescribable Luminosity

paradise_of_future_buddha_maitreya_tp39If what appears to be apprehended does not exist by its very own essence apart from that which apprehends it, then what appears to be the apprehender does not exist either.

The reason, here, is that the apprehender exists in relation to the apprehended, not in isolation.

Therefore, awareness is devoid of both apprehender and apprehended, in all their various forms.

Free from subject and object, by its very own nature awareness is a mere indescribable luminosity.

―Maitreya
