Consciousness (rnam shes): Buddhism distinguishes various levels of consciousness: gross, subtle and extremely subtle. The first one correspond to the activity of the brain. The second one is what we intuitively call "consciousness", which is among other things the faculty of consciousness to know itself, investigate its own nature and exert free will. The third and most essential one is called the "fundamental luminosity of mind". [MR]
