An unlimited yet localized aspect of pure awareness which is not involved with any directives of or for self, subject or object. Awareness free of discursive determinations and conceptuality. Non-duality of non-dual awareness. See Bodhicitta which is also a spontaneously arisen aspect of this awareness. In Dzogchen, this is the full implication of pure presence, invested of this inherent awareness as well as of the inseparability of the three times. The all-inclusive and fully permeating view of both the absolute and relative aspects of existence. The non-differentiated ground-essence of any unity. Awareness beyond singularity and multiplicity.
