Luminous is the mind. And it is freed from incoming defilements. The well-instructed disciple of the Noble Ones discerns that as it actually is present, which is why I tell you that, for the well-instructed disciple of the noble ones, there is development of the mind.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Pabhassara Sutta, Anguttara Nikaya
