resultant vehicle

('bras bu'i theg pa) - The Vajrayana system of taking fruition as the path by regarding buddhahood as inherently present and regarding the path as the act of uncovering [revealing] the basic state. This is different from the Causal philosophical vehicles of Mahayana and Hinayana, which regard the path as that which leads to and produces the state of buddhahood. Ultimately, these two approaches are not in conflict. See also Secret Mantra.
