abhimukhī-bhūmi (T. mngon du 'gyur ba/mngon du phyogs pa མངོན་དུ་འགྱུར་བ་/མངོན་དུ་ཕྱོགས་པ་; C. xiangquian di) is translated as the "manifest ground," "evident ground," etc. It is the sixth of the ten bodhisattva grounds (bhumis) according to the presentation in the Dasabhumika-sutra of the Sanskrit Mahayana tradition.
Patrul Rinpoche states:
- At this stage, the pāramitā of wisdom is perfected. All the obscurations associated with ignorance and delusion are purified.
- Twelve sets of ten billion qualities are gained, such as the ability to enter into and arise from ten billion samādhi meditations in a single instant, and so on.
- One can take birth as a ruler of Tuṣita.
- This sixth bhūmi is called ‘Clearly Manifest’, because for bodhisattvas at this stage, all the phenomena of saṃsāra and nirvāṇa are fully evident.
