eight aspects of complete liberation [RB]

the Eight Emancipations; short for rnam par thar pa brgyad (Skt. aṣṭavimokṣa): 1) the emancipation of viewing that which has form as form (gzugs can la gzugs la lta ba'i rnam thar), 2) the emancipation of viewing the formless as form (gzugs med gzugs la lta ba'i rnam thar), 3) the emancipation of revulsion (sdug pa'i rnam thar), 4) the emancipation of the mental sphere of infinite space (nam mkha' mtha' yas skye mched kyi rnam thar), 5) the emancipation of the mental sphere of infinite consciousness (rnam shes mtha' yas skye mched kyi rnam thar), 6) the emancipation of the mental sphere of absolute nothingness (ci yang med pa'i skye mched kyi rnam thar), 7) the emancipation of the mental sphere of neither conception nor non-conception (du shes med min skye mched kyi rnam thar), and 8) the emancipation of cessation of conception and sensation (du shes dang tshor ba 'gog pa'i rnam thar). Numbers 4-7 are the emancipations related to each of the four formless realms (arūpyaloka, gzugs med kyi khams) and their respective meditative absorptions (dhyāna, bsam gtan). Also sometimes listed as rnam par grol ba brgyad [Erick Tsiknopoulos]
