The Essential Points of Mahamudra, Dzogchen, and the Middle Way ~ Khenpo Tsultrim Rinpoche

Hey, hey, lucky students, diligent, faithful and smart,
Take a look at mind’s nature –
simplicity unborn
When reference points and signs dissolve in certainty
Don’t strive, strain, or stop, just relax naturally

Look nakedly at the inexpressible –
Mind’s basic nature, bliss and emptiness
Relaxed, at ease, fixation-free,
All that binds is free in bliss-emptiness
Within this clear light, the dharmadhatu,
Take a look at the play of unborn mind
Mind’s play manifests as appearance-emptiness

Pure awareness, from beginningless time,
Naturally present, transcending mind –
Thoughts that this view is best dissolve naturally
When we realize mind’s reality.
Then tigles of light and rainbows can shine
But since we don’t think they’re real, these
dzogchenpas are fine!

Khenpo Tsultrim Rinpoche
