The essence of the mind is empty and totally unestablished. As it displays from emptiness are unimpeded, it arises as the body and primordial wisdom of a Buddha. In sentient beings the five poisons and so on arise. In those in whom the essence of the mind is empty, the Dharmakaya is present. Even though the displays of the five poisons and ideation are unimpeded, since the root is empty, they are not blocked but are self-appearing and do not remain; and since they are self-releasing, they arise as primordial wisdom. Regard the essence of the mind-itself as the empty Dharmakaya. As it is unceasingly clear, regard it as the Sambhogakaya. Regard self-arising, self releasing, manifold appearances as the Nirmanakaya.

— Avalokitesvara
