The unimpeded path (Skt. vimuktimārgaḥ; Tib. རྣམ་པར་གྲོལ་བའི་ལམ་, nampar drolwé lam, Wyl. rnam par grol ba'i lam or in short rnam grol lam)

In the Khenjuk, Mipham Rinpoche says:

The path of total release is the actualization of the state of freedom after having abandoned the destructive emotions.[1]

The Great Tibetan Dictionary says:

The wisdom that arises in one's mind immediately following the unimpeded path.[2]

The Dungkar Great Tibetan Dictionary says:

The path of total release is that which arises in one's mind immediately following the unimpeded path. It is the path which is newly released from the respective discards. On the path of seeing the paths of total release are synonymous for the eight cognitions. As it says in the Treasury of Abhidharma:
Acceptance and cognition are respectively
The unimpeded path and the path of total release.
It is the path where one experiences the result or freedom which comes about after having relinquished one's respective discards.[3]

From among the sixteen moments on the path of seeing, the paths of total release are synonymous for the eight cognitions, which are the freedoms from the eight discards.
