Cause & Result

Dolpo1A result arises when a cause exists; all seeds produce results which match their causes. Who can attest that there are fruits without seeds? Likewise, it is impossible that a result is accomplished without a cause.

Nagarjuna and I recognize that this basic element of Buddhahood, which exists from the beginning, becomes the seed of the Truth Body of all Dharma in cyclic existence and its transcendence. Through its purification of incidental defilements by gradual stages and paths, we can attain the state of Buddhahood free from defilements.

—Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen, Commentary on Nagarjuna’s Dharmadhatustava
