The great garuda soaring in the sky sees the four continents effortlessly. With no trepidation in the abyss of deep ravines, she subdues with splendour the flocks of birds. Similarly, the four devils are realised as rootless by decisively cutting through experiences. Demons and devils and such are subdued by splendour. There is no trepidation about the three lower realms. Engaging in cause-and-effect dharma without knowing rootlessness definitely is like leaving the trunk and reaching for the branches.
