Samsara and Nirvana is One - Part 3

Next in this line is the following words: tshang bas.

The word is actually tshang ba, complete. The sa at the end is an instrumental particle, it binds that follows next to the previous sentence. Think of it as translated as 'by' at this point of time.

tshang ba is actually an adjective that is tied to the earlier 'khor 'das, Samsara and Nirvana. Typically adjectives are after the noun in Tibetan. Thus this section is the complete Samsara and Nirvana. Or, Samsara and Nirvana are complete.

So what is the complete part about? They are complete, because all samsaric (impure experiences) are complete in the form of characteristics. The path of Nirvana is complete concerning the form of qualities, and the final results are complete in the form of the potency. In other words, nothing exists outside this.
