Xuanzang0012.jpeg

The four forms of wisdom are the great mirror wisdom of Aksobhya, the universal wisdom of Ratnaketu, the profound observing wisdom of Amitabha, and the perfecting wisdom of Amoghasiddhi.

The great mirror wisdom of Aksobhya has evolved from the alayavijnana, the storehouse of all seeds of consciousness; the universal wisdom of Ratnaketu, from klista-mano-vijnana,

reasoning; the profound observing wisdom of Amitabha, from the sixth consciousness or intellect;

and the perfecting wisdom of Amoghasiddhi, from the first to the fifth consciousness or seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touch.

An enlightened practitioner verging on Buddhahood wholly transforms the eight kinds of consciousness into four forms of wisdom.

Such is the competency uniquely of the Buddha.
