The self-arisen coemergent wisdom, which abides in oneself throughout beginningless time, seems not to exist when hindered by adventitious stains and appears to become full or arise.
This is because this wisdom gradually appears on the Bodhisattva levels as the adventitious stains are being gradually removed by the remedy. This wisdom, however, is not absent or nonexistent in sentient beings and made full along the Bodhisattva levels. It is not newly created.
