That is, the attainment of a high station and the ultimate good are said to be what benefits mankind. And the cause of these two is the absence of error, since all the mental afflictions are rooted in error and the benefit of the world depends upon the reversal of the mental afflictions. Therefore, the reversal of the cause of the mental afflictions stands as the cause that brings about the benefit of the world. Moreover, the absence of error refers to the belief that regards the relationship between karma and its results correctly, as well as an unerring realisation of the insubstantiality of the person and [an unerring realisation of the insubstantiality] of entities.
