Hello, Buddhist brothers.

The human world of existence is illusory owing to the
functioning discrimination by consciousness (vijnana)
which is caused by ignorance since beginningless time.
When the discrimination by consciousness ceases wisdom
(prajna) arises.
Thus the (1) the pollution of the world of ignorance
is transformed into (2) the world of wisdom.

(1) is samsara, (2) is nirvana.

Both are similar within the same entity, that is, the
2 sides of the same coin.

This is the state attained by Hinayanists of the Sravaka
and Pratyekabuddha.
The attainment of Buddhahood is complete enlightenment
following the Mahayana path.

May all have wisdom.
