Where the past has ceased and the future has not yet arisen,
In the unimpeded state of present wakefulness,
Rest in the manner of mind looking into mind.
No matter what thoughts may arise at this time,
They are all the display of the single mind essence.
As the nature of space is unchanging,
You will realize the all-pervasive mind essence to be changeless.
This is the Great Perfection, the ultimate of all vehicles,
The unexcelled meaning of the self-existing Mind Section.
