Also, original enlightenment?
Nah I think that part of the translation is actually accurate "the Tathāgatāni of their own awakening know this" or "The Tathagata themselves know realise this".
Indeed, that was a more wistful suggestion :spy:
子念昔貧,志意下劣,今於父所,大獲珍寶,并及舍宅、一切財物。甚大歡喜,得未曾有。
The son thought of past poverty, outlook humble, now having from father a treasure harvest, also father's house, all his wealth. Great joy - to have what was never before had.

Τῆς πατρῴας, δόξης σου, ἀποσκιρτήσας ἀφρόνως, ἐν κακοῖς ἐσκόρπισα, ὅν μοι παρέδωκας πλοῦτον· ὅθεν σοι τὴν τοῦ Ἀσώτου, φωνὴν κραυγάζω· Ἥμαρτον ἐνώπιόν σου Πάτερ οἰκτίρμον, δέξαι με μετανοοῦντα, καὶ ποίησόν με, ὡς ἕνα τῶν μισθίων σου.
Your fatherly due I withheld unthinking, in evil I wasted your wealth; a prodigal cries, "I've erred, father, receive the repentant as serf."

法住、法空、法如、法爾
dharmāṇām pratiṣṭhitā dharmāṇām śūnyatā dharmāṇām tathātā dharmāṇām tiṣṭhitā
The SF fragments, representing a recension that is parallel, though by no means identical, to the SA/ZA being discussed here, has the following expression:
iti yātra dharmatā dharmasthititā dharmaniyāmatā dharmayathātathā
It would appear that the Sanskrit (Marcus Bingenheimer argues, I will find the citations shortly, for a Prākrit original to the SA material, though some others controversially argue for Gāndhārī) may have had grammatical compounds something more akin to:
法住、法空、法如、法爾
iti yātra dharmatā dharmasthititā dharmanairātmya dharmayathātathā
