The six special attributes (Tib. ཁྱད་ཆོས་དྲུག་, Wyl. khyad chos drug) define the process of gaining realization within the ground of being according to the Atiyoga teachings:

  • awareness emerging from the ground of being,
  • perceiving its own manifestation,
  • distinguishing itself from any state of confusion,
  • gaining freedom in that distinction,
  • not relying on any external condition for its presence, and
  • resting in its own natural lucidity.[1]
