Homage to the Buddha ~ Nagarjuna

You taught that whatever arises dependently
Is free of ceasing, free of arising;
Free of extinction, free of permanence;
Free of coming, free of going;
Free of being one, free of being many —
You taught perfect peace, the easing of all elaborations.
Perfect Buddha, supreme among speakers,
I pay homage to you.
