The dharmakāya’s very own face – Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö

Pure awareness of the unborn dharmakāya
Is not created by cause or condition, but is naturally occurring.
Vividly alert, fresh and nakedly clear,
Unstained by thoughts of perceiver or perceived,
Unspoiled by presumptive understanding—
In this natural experience of concentration, remain.
‘Remain’, however, is but an expression —
In reality, there is no one that remains, nor any remaining as such.

In this rigpa-emptiness — the dharmakāya’s very own face —
Abide at all times, in undistracted recognition.
