The flavor of the natural state ~ Shantarakshita

While nothing ever moves from equality’s expanse
Appearances shine in a wondrous magic show
So many rivers flow into the mighty sea
Where all their different waters have the same salty taste
Though many they may be, they all taste the same
In this there is no differentiation
And everything there is all throughout existence
All have the telling flavor of the natural state
How wonderful this is, this is wonderful indeed
What happiness this is, this is happiness indeed
