The union of samsara and nirvana ~ Padmasambhava

When you realize that all that appears and exists to be your mind, there is no path of enlightenment apart from that… When samsaric existence is freed in itself, there is no awakened state to accomplish apart form that. Once you realize this, samsara and nirvana are not two.
