Ultimate reality means that precisely these mere appearances are naturally free from all reference points. In this way, the two realities are completely free from being the same or different.
At the same time, both are just conventional, and neither is independently real. The point of Madhyamaka is to bring every kind of clinging to reality, unreality, entities, and nonentities to an end. In this way, since the seeming is deceiving and illusionlike, it is merely false imagination that appears as the abodes, objects, and bodies of sentient beings, all consisting of the eight consciousnesses.
Since these consciousnesses arise in dependence on false imagination, they are not real. The root of such mistakenness is the stainless dharmadhatu being unaware of itself, but there is nothing in all of this that is really established. When these teachings on the two realities are practiced as the path, they represent the two accumulations, and their fruition is the union of the two kayas. The Dharmadhatustava is a teaching on the very essence of pure mind, which is stained by apprehender and apprehended in just an adventitious way.
