Three Illuminations (三明). In the Mahāparinirvāṇa Sūtra (T12n0375, 0675b7–9), the three illuminations are
(1) illumination of Bodhisattvas, which is prajñā-pāramitā;
(2) illumination of Buddhas, which is the Buddha-eye;
(3) illumination that ends one’s ignorance, which is ultimate emptiness (compare with Three Clarities).
