Eighth Day of Wisdom: The Dhāraṇī “Entering Into Non-conceptuality”
ON ITS 10TH BIRTHDAY, 84000 PRESENTS THE EIGHTH SŪTRA IN OUR TEN DAYS OF WISDOM:
The Dhāraṇī “Entering Into Non-conceptuality” is a short Mahāyāna sūtra that came to be particularly influential in Yogācāra circles. The central theme of the sūtra is the attainment of the non-conceptual realm, reached through the practice of relinquishing all conceptual signs by not directing the mind toward them. The sūtra presents the progressive stages through which bodhisattvas can abandon increasingly subtle conceptual signs and eliminate the erroneous ideas that lead to the objectification of phenomena.
