My understanding is that the ālayavijñāna contains bīja, vāsanā (karmic 'impressions') which provide 'initial conditions' for a continuum. But I do not find in the literature that those vāsanā, if bīja are 'nullified', have any effect on the process of āśrayasyaparāvṛtti, 'return to the basis'.
This is what I am finding confusing.
The transformation of the basis is the conversion of vijñāna to jñāna based on the eradication of the bijas.
The Mahāyāna saṃgraha contains a complete account.
