Primordial, knowing mind is behind all and every experience so every experience is inseparable from primordial mind.
Confusion is the process whereby we believe that mental events, beings and phenomena are independent from this primordial mind even though such confusion is a part of and not apart from it.
Absolute truth, often described as ‘the basic nature of mind,’ is nondual. Relative truth, which is the way we usually experience mind, is dual. Dual here means a view which perceives a fundamental separation – and thus a duality – between self and other, one person and another, one place and another, one moment and another.
The Buddhist teachings involve three main Yanas, or vehicles, which correspond with the three main stages of spiritual development (true in all genuine traditions) namely:
a) working with confusion to tame and pacify it
b) working out of confusion into realization
c) working with realization to stabilize and complete it
The liberation of enlightenment is simply no longer functioning in a state of existential confusion. And what is the nature of confusion again? Not seeing, and therefore not being at one with, the nature of mind.
These three kayas, though distinct, are inseparable; no single one happens without the other two being present so basically they are just three aspects of one overall reality.
