Aalaya and Neutral awareness

Post by Daniel Arraes » Mon Feb 06, 2012 10:00 pm

Can one say that, according to Dzogchen, Aalaya (kun-gzhi) and the neutral awareness (shes-pa-lung-ma-bstan) are the same thing?

No, they are different. The ālaya is ignorance.

Relax, don’t worry about all the problems of samsara. Everything is relative. But try to be present.

I've seen ālaya roughly translated to (or said to represent) a sort of storehouse or warehouse consciousness, is it due to this notion that it is essentially ignorance?

What type of ignorance: innate or imputing?

Imputing since it is afflicted.
