Instant that is the final moment or phase when an action is completed

(1) In the context of essence mahamudra practice, the final moment completing the path when those for whom it happens all at once remove all emotional and cognitive obscurations at once, and achieve seeing pathway minds (path of seeing), accustoming pathway minds (path of meditation), and pathway minds needing no further training (enlightenment) all simultaneously. (2) In the context of the seventh of the eight sets of realizations presented in Maitreya’s "Filigree of Realizations" (mNgon-rtogs rgyan, Skt. Abhisamayalamkara), realizations applied at the last phase, the final phase of practice that completes the path and thus immediately precedes and brings on the attainment of full enlightenment, namely the last phase of the tenth-level bhumi stage of a bodhisattva’s accustoming pathway mind.
