In Dzogchen, they are the same thing.

Shortest Dzogchen thread ever!! :twothumbsup:
1.The problem isn’t ‘ignorance’. The problem is the mind you have right now. (H.H. Karmapa XVII @NYC 2/4/18)
2. I support Mingyur R and HHDL in their positions against lama abuse.
3. Student: Lama, I thought I might die but then I realized that the 3 Jewels would protect me.
Lama: Even If you had died the 3 Jewels would still have protected you. (DW post by Fortyeightvows)

Not so fast, fellers. Is gzhi-snang also Dharmadhatu, or not? I would say yes. Just like sex without a partner is not really sex, the ground-manifestation and ground go together.

The basis is the basis is the basis, whether it "rises up" or not. Anyway, here the basis is just the mind essence, one's unfabricated consciousness.
