The realization of Spontaneous Summit

O wonder, the dharmata of awakened mind
Can neither be dissected nor examined,
Nor found or changed by any remedy.

Apart from mind there is no other buddha.
Not found by seeking, he is naught but mind.
This buddha is mind's nature uncontrived.

And this awakened essence, timeless and unsought,
Unstained by concentration, present by itself,
I realize the buddha-mind is simply nothing else.

When my material body crumbles into dust,
Samantabhadra's heart will shine within me.
GHITAMA KOLASA A HOH


--Buddhamati the Courtesan
(from Wellsprings of the Great Perfection)
