Free of Contrivance

The primordial wisdom of emptiness is free of contrivance. It is truly and naturally present within our impure perception and consciousness. When dharmata (intrinsic nature) is covered, obscured consciousness remains as temporary and removable, and the defilements are unreal. Therefore, it is said that ultimate truth is also freed from the two extremes. […]

The nature of primordial wisdom is ever-present and never changes. For that reason, it is not empty of its own nature; it is permanent.

—Taranatha, Great Madhyamaka
