In contrast to fundamental darkness or ignorance, the fundamental Mystic Law corresponds to the Dharma nature, or, in other words, fundamental enlightenment. Whereas the causes and conditions of suffering in the cycle of birth and death are found in the three paths of earthly desires, karma and suffering, the way to attaining Buddhahood is found in the three virtues of the Dharma body, wisdom and emancipation.
We awaken to the Law (thereby perceiving our Dharma body), we manifest wisdom (thereby revealing our wisdom), and we gain freedom from suffering (thereby achieving emancipation). Finally, we end our transmigration through the sufferings of birth and death that we have undergone since time without beginning and attain the state of life of a Buddha, which is endowed with the four virtues of eternity, happiness, true self and purity.
