The moon sheds her silver glory all over the earth, mountains and rivers.
Remote and serene is the great dome of heaven.
From the solitude of sky came a voice, clear and bright, as deep as the sound of the distant bell in the ravine,
Echoing through the waving depth of the heart… …
Discard complexity of concepts.
Relax your senses and mind.
You should know,
Opinion and thought are but perceptions of the mind,
Obscuring the reality of nature divine.
Everything you see is the mind displaying the memory of itself.
Past, present, and future, are an illusory continuity of “the seer” clinging to “the seen”.
The thought-form of you is just like the dirt and dust that alights on the mirror of the mind.
Wiping out the dust, the reality of life unfolds itself.
From the memory of the mind, dreams arise, tangibly.
Yet the mind itself is free of all dreams.
Seeing yet nothing seen in itself.
Seeing transcends the seen.
Free from all that is seen, seeing pervades every sight,
With no distinction into any one sight.
That is “I AM”.
So simple, “I AM”,
That it can be not perceived by thoughts.
So pure, the manifest of “I AM”,
That it can be not touched by emotions.
Within the illusory and defiled body-mind dwells the Supreme Reality,
Shining forth through ignorance and habitual tendencies,
Pure and effortless.
Buddha-Nature is right here and now in your delusory mind,
Radiating through lust and greed,
Clear and transparent.
No rational intellect was to reach me,
Merely because consciousness is but the deluded state of primordial awareness.
No endeavor was to attain me,
Merely because divisive thoughts fabricate a misunderstanding of me.
No experience was to describe me,
Merely because every sensation places bondage that limits me.
Everything is the grace of primordial awareness,
Whereby the manifold dance of illusory forms appear in an endless succession.
Yet pure awareness is detached from all deliberate action in the sphere of void.
Go forth and love your enemies.
You should know,
All enemies are created by the illusion of the mind filled with hatred.
Misperception of your true self gives rise to love and hatred.
As waves of the ocean blown and tossed by the wind, the mind of hatred casts the image of adversary.
What you hate and hatred itself are inseparable.
Loving your enemies is to forgive yourself.
When the waves of hatred subside, the disturbed mind rests naturally at peace.
The tranquil and peaceful state,
Is “I AM”.
All lovers, relatives, and friends are but karmic debts of the mind,
Like the tossing foam amid waves of the sea.
It is the reflection of me in the taint of your love and desire that presents the kinship tangibly in your eyes.
Purify your body-mind, let go the perpetual foaming of thoughts.
When the foaming is dispersed, the ocean-swell is at one with its peaceful depths,
As immense as the space illuminating the body and the mind.
The spaciousness merges into the nothingness.
That is “I AM”.
Open now the gate of your mind, widely,
Let not the flow of rational thoughts shutter the light of awareness.
Way of life is utterly simple and straight,
As clear as the cloudless sky,
As translucent as the blemish-free moon.
It is your mental fabrication that inflicts life’s ups and downs,
As if erecting a mountain barrier upon the open plain.
A trace of doubt stripes a deep groove.
A hair of craving upholds a great hill.
An instant of hatred beckons frightening beasts (wolves, serpents, tigers, and leopards)
A flicker of eros creates swamp and lake.
Forgetting your true self,
You stagger around in a dream-land with a heart full of sufferings.
Enticed by the lures of ignorance and cravings, you find yourself helpless and lonely.
It is your craving and striving that perpetuate the dream-like Samsara,
Forging all calamities and troubles.
Leaving behind all bondage of selfish desires and dead habits, you come nearer to meet with me in yourself – the primal appearance of your true Self.
Let go of the ego, completely.
Only then you embrace the life as a whole.
The stream of life and death flows only in your mind.
Liberate the fears that urge to protect yourself.
Then the mind relaxed and gentle becomes the vast sea of great love.
Great love transcends words.
Great love implies truth.
Great love raids demons.
Great love dispels darkness.
Great love is blessings, forgiveness, and self-discipline.
Great love is the root of renunciation, the flow of divine light, the peaceful joy, the bliss of great fulfillment, and God ending all fears.
When great love springs from within, reality unveils my face to you.
Truly devote yourself without reservation and regret.
The force of the ego that fuels all the suffering melts away.
Sacred love enlightens the body and the mind, within and without.
Accept what life brings, that is the face of “I AM”.
Absolute and natural,
“I AM” the naked joy, the natural liberation, the transparent Now, and the tender peace.
Beauty is insufficient to convey my gorgeousness.
Greatness is insufficient to assess my simplicity.
“I AM” so self-evident,
That the seeing, hearing, feeling, and knowing of sentient beings are all ultimate me.
Yet, sentient beings are deluded by their own thinking, seeing, and knowing, and unaware of me.
Merely because what they perceive defiles the utter simplicity of me.
The primordial awareness pervades all as it ever is.
Yet it can be not realized by sentient beings,
Merely because the incessant stream of thoughts blinds the eye of their hearts.
“I AM”- the primordial awareness of sentient beings,
Ever aware in the cyclic dreams of birth and death.
“I AM” - the essence of your happiness, anger, sorrow, and joy,
Pure and in the arising and resting of thoughts.
“I AM” - the nature of your seeing, hearing, feeling, and knowing,
Witnessing dependent origination and destruction through your sensory experience and intellectual discrimination.
Yet unfixed and unperturbed in all births and deaths.
All fantasies emerge from distinctions of your mind.
Yet, “I AM” not affected or changed by whatever you perceive.
The universe mirrors “I AM”.
Striving to recognize "I AM" in delusion gives rise to the primal light of all life-forms.
“I AM” the source of hatred and happiness, love and desire in the deep of your being.
When you are indulged in the colorful experience of life,
Experience disturbs the peaceful state of your self-nature.
Experience then takes the beingness out of you,
Obscuring the primordial pure awareness.
Delusions discriminate the existence of light.
Enlightenment embodies the light of Wisdom.
When the discriminative mind comes into being and creates distinctions, the world appears.
You are the ignorant form of me.
“I AM” the original nature of you,
Laying asleep in the deep of your heart.
The world is the reflection of self-awareness.
And the awareness is of absolute perfection in its reflection.
Affliction is but Bodhi.
Bodhi is together with afflictions, never apart, in the vast expanse of timeless stillness.
Sentient beings are essentially me,
“I AM” no other than sentient beings.
The body and the mind are pure illusion,
Closely examine that you come nearer to me.
All dharmas are void in self-nature,
Thoroughly contemplate that you are approaching me.
What you see is all but your mind,
Fully aware that you get free from all attachment and defilement,
Which is the form of “I AM”.
When the train of emotions and compulsive thinking come to an end,
The discursive mind melts into the nature of pure awareness.
When all illusions utterly vanish, “I AM” awakening in you.
Eternal is Now.
“I AM” along with the formation, abiding, destruction, and ultimate void of the entire universe in beginningless kalpas.
The void nature of all dependent origination is “I AM”.
“I AM” abides in the minds of innumerable sentient beings in the vast expanse of space.
Illuminating every delusional moment with marvelous brightness.
Reflection of me in illusory karma-bound minds brings out the rise and fall of life.
Enslaved by delusions and afflictions,
Sentient beings are seeking the path of me,
This gives birth to the eighty-four thousand dharani-teaching.
Consciousness arises from the restless heart.
Emotion arises from the anxious mind frantically seeking relief.
Perception arises from the confusion and uncertainty of the self.
Ego arises from the fear and obsession of the delusory mind.
All experience is utter misery in essence.
Sentient beings are but the fruits of karmic deeds.
Forgetting the true self, you are goaded by habitual patterns and sufferings.
Because of ignorance of your original nature,
You cling to the outward out of fear.
Looking for proof leads you astray,
You grasp at illusions,
Like drowning non-swimmers in the sea,
Struggling frantically to grasp the life-saving straw.
It is the eager self-identification with whatever you perceive that makes you forget your true being, losing your way into the dream-land of ignorance.
You are the ignorant form of me,
“I AM” the enlightened one in you.
You are the pursuant state of “I AM” in dreams.
When the chase ends,
That ever-present, free from all delusions, is “I AM”.
The primordial awareness has never been apart from all beings.
When all beings renounce their ego-self,
That non-attainable is but awareness itself.
The faculty of seeing with eyes that see the world is the changeless among the changeful sights.
The faculty of discerning with mind that distinguishes good from evil is the changeless among the changeful deeds.
The faculty of conceiving with memory that records concepts true and false, and right and wrong is the changeless among the changeful concepts.
The faculty of sensing with heart that feels pain or pleasure is the changeless among the changeful experiences.
The vision of God and the vision of demon, when arising, arise from the mind itself.
Yet, the essence of the mind is the changeless, becoming not holy in sight of God, nor disgraced in sight of demon.
Whatever you perceive is nothing but the turbulence of your mind.
It is through your mind that the world appears in “I AM”.
When the world merges with the mind indistinguishable,
That marvelous awareness at peace is “I AM”.
Neither entertaining the pure.
Nor rejecting the impure,
“I AM” omnipresent in all directions of Ten Realms of Dharma,
Yet remains natural and unconditioned in every name and shape.
All kinds of activity, birth-and-death, cause-and-effect, are the delusory state of “I AM”.
All forms of life and the world as such are the beingness of “I AM”.
All Dharma and truth are the paths in search of “I AM”.
All creatures and the nature are the drifting of “I AM” in cyclic existence.
All realms of Buddhas dwelling in fine mote of dust are the compassionate response of “I AM”.
All ego-selves of sentient beings are dreadful suffering of “I AM”.
The witness that witnesses the arising and the ceasing is the consciousness.
When the consciousness is released from the witnessing mind,
Enlightenment comes in.
Perceiving and the perceived are never apart but ultimate One.
Realization and ignorance are never apart but ultimate One.
Sentient beings and Buddhas are never apart but ultimate One.
Transience and eternity are never apart but ultimate One.
Reality and illusion are never apart but ultimate One.
Affliction and Bodhi are never apart but ultimate One.
Heaven and hell are never apart but ultimate One.
Samsara and nirvana are never apart but ultimate One.
Enlightenment and enlightened from the outset are void in nature.
Realizing that all forms are essentially formless,
You meet with me.
The real nature of your afflictions is but the marvelous awareness of “I AM”.
When Buddhists read Sutra,
Chanting Buddhas’ names,
You should know,
What they chant is me.
When the Church of God pray to God,
You should know,
The prayer of the Holy Spirit is me.
When heretics worship the Fire or the Moon,
Praying for the spiritual power of Gods,
Extolling the greatness of the Creator,
You should know,
The light of miracles is me.
Lao-tze calls me “the Tao”.
Buddha names me “the Nature”.
Heretics honor me “the Supreme Brahman”,
Sentient beings hunt for me as “the Truth”.
From different knowledge of "I AM" are born sentient beings of different realms.
Yet sentient beings and "I AM" are uniform and in essence One.
The sense of “I AM” gives birth to you,
When the object-craving mind vanishes, and there then is no you but “I AM”.
Neither taking nor rejecting, neither tainted nor pure, neither living nor died. “I AM” ever-present in perceptions of sentient beings, never apart.
