Inside that and with half its measure is the symbolic world of enlightening mind, with walls that are three layers thick, from the outside, in order, black, red and white. All three symbolic worlds are square, with four doorways... In the center of the lower level of the body archway friezes, in the eastern one... On top of the walls of the three symbolic worlds is a molding of jewels... pennants placed on it. Surrounding each set of walls on their outside lies a ledge... flanking stoop. On their corners... their four root corners on the outside of each set of walls are adorned with a crossed diamond-strong scepter, and in such ways as these this great symbolic world of Cycles of Time has all the classic features complete. Inside the walls of each of the three symbolic worlds is a ledge... above it.

With half the measure of the symbolic world of enlightening mind is a circle for deep awareness... and "fire-of-time" eclipsing planets. In the symbolic world of enlightening mind, at the places for the four transformed ones... the western doorway and on top, from OM come... of a moon on each. Likewise, the symbolic worlds of enlightening speech and mind as well are complete with their seats of lotuses and moon, sun and so forth, which arise from seed-syllables and rest either on a live animal or on a chariot drawn by live animals as well. All the floors on the bottom... blue in the center. Outside the symbolic world of enlightening body and up till it reaches... the great grounds for disposing of corpses such as Impaled on Spikes and so on, inside of which, on top of live animals such as a rhino and so on, arisen from their own seed-syllables, and also above, on top of an anila variegated-colored eagle arisen from AM, and below, on top of an eight-limbed griffon-lion arisen from SHAM, there are, arisen from CHAM wheels on the hubs of which, from PAM, are eight-petaled lotuses.
