Base-knowledge (Skt. vastujñāna; Wyl. gzhi shes) is the third of the eight topics of the Abhisamayalankara:

Definition

Base-knowledge is defined as the limited knowledge that realizes all bases to be empty of the self of the individual.

Subdivisions

When the actual base-knowledge is sub-divided, there is the base-knowledge of the shravakas and base-knowledge of the pratyekabuddhas.

If divisions are made according to how the term is applied, there are five:

the base-knowledge that abides in neither existence nor quiescence,
the base-knowledge that is distant from the ‘resultant mother’ ,
the base-knowledge that is close to the ‘resultant mother’,
the base-knowledge that is unfavourable and
the base-knowledge that is a remedy.

Parameters

The actual base-knowledge is present on the five paths of the hinayana,

but all the noble ones of the mahayana possess the nominal base-knowledge.

It is also said that it is present in the mind-stream of all noble ones.
