Pointing out: Now


Attachment to pleasant experiences
vanishes of its own accord.

Illusory and negative thoughts
are in their essence pure, like space.

In that simple state of mind there is
nothing that must be given up or
developed, avoided or attained.

May the truth of the uncomplicated
nature of reality be realized.

Shine: Experiences


May the waves of subtle and coarse thoughts subside
on their own, and the placid river of mind gently come
to rest. May the ocean of serene abiding, without the
silt and mire of torpor and dullness, remain steady
and unperturbed.

Saraha: Nonattachment to what is untrue.


Just as an image appears
on the mirror´s surface,
where the ignorant look
in their lack of knowledge,
so the mind that throws
away the truth relies on many
concepts that are not true.

Saraha: Attachment


Bugs on excrement are attached to its smell
and think the pure fragrance of sandalwood foul.
Likewise, attached to dense ignorance,
the source of samsara,
individuals toss away the
trascendence of suffering.
