|+||'''Base-knowledge''' (Skt. ''vastujñāna''; [[Wyl.]] ''gzhi shes'') is the third of the [[eight topics]] of the ''[[Abhisamayalankara]]'':|
|+||Base-knowledge is defined as the limited knowledge that realizes all bases to be empty of the self of the individual.|
|+||When the actual [base-knowledge] is sub-divided, there is the base-knowledge of the [[shravakas]] and that of the [[pratyekabuddhas]].|
|+||If divisions are made according to how the term is applied, there are five: the base-knowledge that abides in neither existence nor quiescence, the base-knowledge that is distant from the ‘resultant mother’ , the base-knowledge that is close to the ‘resultant mother’, the base-knowledge that is unfavourable and the base-knowledge that is a remedy.|
|+||The actual base-knowledge is present on the [[five paths]] of the [[hinayana]], but all the noble ones of the [[mahayana]] possess the nominal base-knowledge. It is also said that it is present in the mind-stream of all noble ones.|
