Eight qualities the Dharma — According to Maitreya's Uttaratantra Shastra, the Dharma has "eight qualities of cessation and the path":


1) purity, since free from emotional obscurations
2) clarity, since free from cognitive obscurations
3) remedy, since it overcomes both obscurations


4) inconceivable, since beyond concepts
5) utterly peaceful, since it is free from karma and disturbing emotions
6) unfathomable, since individually cognized


7) cessation; and
8) the path.
