Beautiful forms are just like a mass of foam,
Feelings are just like bubbles,
Perceptions are like mirages,
Conditioning is like the soft plantain tree,
And consciousness is just like an illusion.
Everything is produced from fantasies
And from the nonexistent imaginings of a fool.
The Miraculous Play of Mañjuśrī, I.202-I.203
