Ignorance and attachment of the real situation support the foment of dualistic views, the intertia of karmic obscurations and negative habit patterns; appearances, including the perceiver are viewed dualistically and not recognized for what they are.

Pure appearances are an expression of the dynamics of primordial wisdom: undisturbed by the obscuring operations of duality and world- forming karmas.
