The Vijiianavada theory is that an image appears when the latent residual force of experience is actualized, and that this image is not formed by the cognition of an external object. This theory makes clear that empirical cognition is karmic and stresses the need to find an absolute knowledge which transcends the level of empirical cognition.

This theory makes clear that empirical cognition is karmic and stresses the need to find an absolute knowledge which transcends the level of empirical cognition. This Vijiianavada theory, which denies the existence of external entities as objects of cognition, naturally invites the opposition of all schools which took a realist position.
