Accustoming pathway mind

The level of mind of arya shravakas, arya pratyekabuddhas and arya bodhisattvas, with which they accustom themselves to the joined pair of shamatha and vipashyanā focused non-conceptually on voidness (emptiness) – or, in general, on the sixteen aspects of the four noble truths – and thereby rid themselves of either one or both sets of automatically arising obscurations. The fourth of the five pathway minds (five paths) leading to a purified state of arhatship or enlightenment.
