The root of all that exists,
Samsara and nirvana, is one’s own mind.
Primordially, mind is emptiness.
Merge into the sky-like absolute expanse,
Empty, luminous, beyond clinging.
Outside, inside; eyes open or closed,
Day, night; asleep or awake:
During practice, after practice,
Continuously, without wavering,
Merge completely with this vibrant, sky-like state.
