Emptiness, clarity, and rigpa

When you involve yourself with recognition, there are three topics—view, meditation, and conduct. What is the view? The knowing, the recognizing, right within one instant, of the mind’s emptiness and clarity unified is called the view. When, in just one moment, emptiness, clarity, and the two unified are all there together, that is rigpa. This is not saying that emptiness is recognized in one instant, clarity in another, and their unification in yet another, rather, when all three—emptiness, clarity, and emptiness and clarity unified—are present simultaneously and within one instant, that is said to be rigpa.
