|The five paths|
- The path of no-more-learning (aśaikṣamārga) of each vehicle is the highest goal of that vehicle. For śrāvakas and pratyekabuddhas, this wisdom has eradicated all afflictive obscurations and the person has attained arhatship; for bodhisattvas it has also eradicated cognitive obscurations and actualized buddhahood.
The Khenjuk states:
- The 'perfected path of no-learning' is realization of the attainment of freedom after having interrupted all that should be discarded. That is to say, by means of the vajra-like samadhi of one's individual path, it is the attainment that immediately follows the transformations of mind and path as well as the cognitions of exhaustion and of nonarising.
