I'm not sure. there is Eight Modes of Arising of Spontaneous Accomplishment (Wyl. Lhun-Grub)beyond the Mind including Samsara again. Only during the last third Marigpa the Mind arises, not during first and second! During first and second, when beyond the Mind, is the return possible. This I understand as the reenlightnment of samantabhadra.
I am sure. "To be unconfused and naturally liberated in the displays of spontaneous presence is also called Samantabhadra's ground of liberation." (Circle of the Sun)
"The direct, hard to understand, subtle field of knowing, the Great Path, is non-conceptual (akalpana), and entirely beyond the grasp of intellectual thought. Divorced from verbal ideation, it is difficult to point out and as difficult to enquire into. It cannot be communicated through words and [therefore] is not within the scope of the neophyte (adikarmika). Nevertheless the path is to be approached through studying scriptures (sutra) of the World-Teacher and following the personal instructions (upadesa) of one's Guru-ji."
