Etymology

"Kleshas Equal Bodhi" (煩悩即菩提) is one of the most famous Buddhist concepts of Mahayana. Early Buddhism taught that Kleshas (煩悩) are earthly desires which cloud men attaining enlightenment, in other words, Bodhi (菩提), thus the two are mutually exclusive. However, Mahayana believes that Kleshas and Bodhi are co-existing, recognizes men's very nature of their inability to rid themselves of desires completely, while also possessing the will to attain enlightenment.
