Ground, Path and Fruition

The base to be purified is mind itself, the union of luminosity emptiness
What purifies this, the great vajra yoga of mahamudra
And what is to be purified is all the stains of superficial confusion
The result of this, the state free of all stain, the dharmakaya, may this emerge directly

From the Mahamudra Aspiration Prayer, composed by Karmapa Rangjung Dorje
