Vajra Verses - Part 9

The second part continues thus, mi zad pa...

zad pa is extinction, exhausted, consumed. mi in front makes this the opposite as mi is a negation, thus inexhaustible.

This all refers to the earlier part, so the verse talks about the inexhaustible body, speech, and mind of a Buddha.

It is said that the qualities of an enlightened body, speech, and mind can't even be described. Imagine the options to spontaneously manifest any form that will benefit any sentient being anywhere, have the option to exactly teach and influence anyone towards the same future, and knowing everything that ever was and ever will be. And these capabilities will neither ever end.
