Living here in the material realm, as I am, I don’t really have a sense of what it might mean to know (or to illuminate) all states of existence or nonexistence. I can only guess that it’s the ability to perceive realms and functioning that takes place in different states or even higher dimensions that ones we currently occupy. But even with that, this text serves to remind us of this potential, this level of awareness and functioning that wouldn’t normally occur to most people.
(Homage to the Twelve Buddhas who Dissolve All Karma)
Homage to the Buddha who thoroughly knows
all states of existence and nonexistence.
