‘Buddha’ and ‘Nirvana’

shakyamuni_on_the_throne_of_enlightDirect perfect enlightenment with regard to all aspects,

and abandonment of the stains along with their imprints

are called, respectively, ‘Buddha’ and ‘nirvana’.

In truth, these are not two different things.

Liberation is distinguished by indivisibility

from qualities present in all their aspects:

innumerable, inconceivable, and unpolluted.

Such liberation is also called ‘Tathagata’, Gone Thus and Thus Come.

―Maitreya, Uttaratantra Shastra
