That which operates with conceptual ideas is the ordinary mind,
Whose nature is dualistic, involving ‘perceiver’ and ‘perceived.’
All that it conceptualizes in this way is false,
And can never reach the actual nature of reality.
Any idea of something real or unreal, both or neither —
Any such concept, however it’s conceived, is still only a concept,
And whatever ideas we hold in mind,
They are still within the domain of mara.
This has been stated in the sutras.
It is not by any assertion or denial
That we will put an end to concepts.
But once we see without rejecting or affirming, there is freedom.
Although it is without any perceiving subject or object perceived,
There is naturally occurring wisdom that is aware of itself,
And all ideas of existence, non-existence, both and neither have ceased completely —
This is said to be supreme primordial wisdom.
