If you say, "sun is shinings in the sky", is that parikalpita, paratantra or parinishpanna?
give it a go! you will see that entering freedom, you can say whatever you want... that is parishpanna.

two rabbits in a field, one munches the grass, the other keeps watch.
sounds like a riddle, but actually its not meant to be. it is just complete freedom to accept or reject any dharmas. liberation of mind. ill try again:
a bat meets a hedgehog, both know how to fly.
by the above i avoid any conceptual definitions of parinishpanna, which is completly inscrutible and beyond all analysis (nothing can be said about it); or is perfectly expressed in the smile of a child, or the charging of a bull. and you can say anything you want.
thats my take on parinishpanna. im sure someone else could come up with any dharma whatsoever to express this. some would say: neither rejecting nor accepting any dharma; another would say whatever he wants.
and finally: in the city there are many towerblocks. tall is just tall, short is just short.
hope this is helpful.
best wishes, Tom.
How can you attain knowledge and experience that there is no sun at all, independent of our perception, as Buddhism claims?
When the Warehouse Consciousness finally ceases it is replaced by the Great Mirror Cognition (Mahādarśa-jñāna) that sees and reflects things just as they are, impartially, without exclusion, prejudice, anticipation, attachment, or distortion
