MenKauRa: Sagaramati


O Sagaramati,
all realities are marked by the seal
of innate freedom, which is completely pure and nondual.
Like the expanse of space, all realities are without distinction
because they are all marked by the seal of evenness.

Tilopa: Lada



The nature of mind is neither modulated nor unmodulated.
Understand it to be of primal purity, beyond concepts.

By abstaining from cogitation or contemplation,
examination or analysis,
meditation or performance,
as well as from hope or fear,
the mental clinging to them will be pacified spontaneously
and the mind will attune itself
to the primordial intrinsic reality.

Lada: Determining the mind



Watch that which has been determined
without any mental activities.

Space is designated as empty,
yet its exact nature cannot be verbalized.

Similarly the mind is designated as luminously clear,
yet its exact nature is empty, with no ground for definition.

Thus the self-nature of mind is and has been
from the very beginning like that of SPACE.

Appearances: Virtual or Real?

Appearances are mind.

Apparent objects are not mind.

Looking at mind within appearances:

Do not imagine that the external objects,
or apparent objects, are mind.

Look at appearances in the mind,
and you will find its nature.

Make sure you focus on appearances.

Imagining that apparent objects are mind
will not get you closer to seeing its essence.

Do not block appearances; look at them
as they emerge, stay and vanish.

Like a comet appearing in the sky.
