I am very much interested in Amoghavajra. Does anybody have this thesis:
Orlando, Raffaello: A Study of the Chinese Documents Concerning the Life of the Tantric Buddhist Patriarch Amoghavajra Princeton, 1981
Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.

Śrī Singha said to Padmasambhava:
Since buddhas and sentient beings are inseparable and the same, it is necessary to respect all sentient beings as being on the same level with the buddhas. Can you?

You might also be interested in the works of Charles Orzech, whho has written extensively about Amoghavajra.
