So long as we are seeking highest perfect wisdom, we are still abiding in the realm of consciousness. If we are to realize the cessation of suffering, we must pass beyond consciousness.
In pure concentration transcending consciousness, we have passed beyond discrimination and knowledge, beyond the reach of change or fear. We are already enjoying the cessation of suffering.
The perfect understanding of this and the patient acceptance of it is the highest perfect wisdom. All the Buddhas of the past, present, and future, having attained pure concentration, are awake to highest perfect wisdom.
—Buddha Shakyamuni, Mahaprajnaparamita Sutra
