Whatever exists is only its own nature;
and whatever ends is only its own nature:
there is no movement at all in pure mind
and that stillness is the body of buddha.
Every word that is uttered is only its own purity;
and every vibration is only its own purity:
nothing is spoken or uttered in pure mind,
which is the speech of buddha.
Every thought and intention is intertained only as its own spaciousness,
and every intuition is realised only as its own spaciousness;
nothing at all is thought or intuited in pure mind,
the mind of buddha past, present and future.
