A description of the experience

From Shingon Refractions – Professor Mark Unno

Within the three learnings of precepts, meditation, and wisdom, the two dharmas of meditation and wisdom are profound and complex.

The one gate of the precepts is the way to enter the buddha-dharma without too much ado. It stops the evil karma of sentient beings who are at the first gate of practice; it is not complex but easy. It is like a doctor who knows where the moxacautery points are and marks them. As one reaches deeper levels, so too, do these precepts become more profound and [eventually] come to interpenetrate meditation and wisdom. Thus, it is said that the way is [one] with meditation and [one] with the precepts.
