Akliṣṭa (अक्लिष्ट) refers to the “absence of defilement” (characteristic of dharmas), according to Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter 41).—Accordingly, “[The eighteen āveṇika-dharmas (‘special attributes’)]—[...] (10) He has no loss of wisdom.—As the Buddha has obtained all these wisdoms (prajñā), he has no loss of wisdom; as his wisdom of the three times is unobstructed, he has no loss of wisdom. [...] Furthermore, his wisdom really understands the [true] nature of dharmas, non-arising, non-cessation, non-defilement, non-purification, non-action, non-functioning. He makes no distinction between true knowledge and false knowledge He knows that the dharmas are identical and equally pure, without defilement (akliṣṭa) and without stain like space. Disregarding all duality, he acquires the [true] nature of the Dharma, i.e., entry into non-duality. This entry into non-duality, characteristic of the Dharma, is immense and infinite. This is why he has no loss of wisdom. For various reasons of this kind, the Buddha has no loss of wisdom”.
