Like rainbows in the summer skies ~ Gyelse Tokme Zangpo

The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to let go of grasping
When encountering things one finds pleasant or attractive,
Considering them to be like rainbows in the summer skies —
Beautiful in appearance, yet in truth devoid of any substance.
