I really don't get #1. How can it not be spontaneously present? Or does that mean something like "automatically realized"?asunthatneversets wrote:(i) The belief that the basis is spontaneously present.smcj wrote:Ok, cough it up. What are the other five for us dilettantes?asunthatneversets wrote:
In the sixfold faulty definitions of the basis [gzhi] described in The Six Dimensions of Samantabhadra, your suggestion here is listed as the number two faulty definition of the basis (the belief that the basis is indefinite).
(ii) The belief that the basis is indefinite.
(iii) The belief that it is the definite and determinate foundation.
(iv) The belief that it is totally changeable.
(v) The belief that it can be said to be anything whatsoever.
(vi) The belief that it is multifaceted with various aspects.
The above six are faulty views of the basis.
(vii) The basis is original purity [ka dag] (is the only accurate view).
