Primordial means timeless, eternal, atemporal, primal, original, from the beginning, ever-existing, already and forever, beyond cause and effect.
Knowledge refers to oral, symbolic and direct modes of transmission, through which the primordial source manifests its wisdom-energies inside time corresponding to the specific circumstances of each sentient being. Everything is knowledge, without any limitations.
The essence of primordial knowledge is pure perfect presence – unceasing empty luminous wisdom-energy manifestations. ‘Enlightenment’ is just a word without any meaning. Enlightenment does not really exist. It is total fantasy to search for enlightenment. Pure perfect presence already pervades everything as self-perfected primordial enlightenment.
There is nothing to conceive with a view.
There is nothing to eliminate, create or change through meditation.
There is nothing to correct with behaviour.
There is nothing to achieve or maintain as a goal.
