Explicit suggestive meaning

One of the six alternative meanings for understanding the meaning of a vajra expression in an anuttaryoga tantra root text. When a vajra expression has two dissimilar meanings, the literal, evident, or face value meaning of the expression. It suggests or leads one on to the second meaning (the implicit suggested meaning), which is dissimilar to what is actually said on face value.
