btang snyoms - 1) a term indicating the total (equanimous) view which comes to be revealed as already absolute, innate non-connectedness, non-relatedness, and non-particularity of anything whatsoever - neither one nor more than one thing as may (otherwise) be related to any other thing or things. -- Otherwise, (and as is commonplace and seemingly natural) this makes manifest our dualistic notions (ie., 'this, that, and other') as well as our conceptuality of particulars and, when applicable, their aggregates (skandhas). What's also quite natural about such extremes is unawareness (ignorance) of such. The view of (pure, undifferientiated) equanimity includes but is not limited merely to opposites. It 'sees' or, reveals means and purpose where heretofore, none is perceived. Nothing escapes its vast panorama of view upon awakening through recognition. 2) The infinite view which subsumes all 'things'. 3) The view in which even the term 'equality' cannot be appropriately applied, for here we have neither singularity nor plurality, meaning that as this we have neither 'one' nor 'some other(s)' by which such equality might be established. Only in a relative sense then, things are ever changing, and yet ultimately are always beyond even unity in 'their' sameness, see dbyer med. The view is 'already like this' once we come to this awareness. Complete and total equanimity is effortlessly ineffable, and what's moreso - innate beyond even thought...as also is unawareness innate until such a time as it awakens to realization...as it is. It's merely revealed as such, yet never attained...always present yet neither had nor possessed. 4) This equanimity is the view beyond - and as essence cannot be limited by, or to 'any or all-things'. Pure awareness. rig pa See also Dharmakaya; chos sku; tha mi dad pa. RWB
