Know that mind is the unity of clarity and emptiness ~ Mipham Rinpoche

The manifold mind, like a dream and an illusion,
Has no nature when analyzed;
All perceptions have the nature of the moon reflected in water.
Know that mind is the unity of clarity and emptiness.

When this is not merely conceptually determined, but
Comes to be understood within self-awareness, then
The wisdom body of all the buddhas –
The essential nature of the Dharma, the innate mind, and
The definitive meaning of the youthful Manjushri –
Is directly seen by nonconceptual awareness.
