After the Buddha became enlightened, he said:

Profound peace, free from fabrication, is uncompounded clear light. 

This Dharma I found is just like nectar.

If I teach, no one will understand it.

Therefore, I am staying in the forest in silence. 
Sublime Guru, you who know, please look upon us with compassion.

Please bless us to pacify our pride and selfishness.

The primordially pure essence of the fundamental state is all-pervading emptiness.

The nature of this primordial purity is ever present and inseparable from appearance – so that timeless emptiness and temporal appearances are never divided but always non-dual.

It is only because of this that buddhas manifest when the natural state is realised, whereas sentient beings manifest when it is not.

Everyone thinks of changing the world
But no one thinks of changing himself

Sentient beings are numberless, I vow to save them.

Desires are inexhaustible, I vow to put an end to them.

The Dharmas are boundless, I vow to master them.

Enlightenment is unattainable,  I vow to attain it.

Can the mind be free of illusion?
Are we always grasping for some kind of security within our foolish illusions?
We make illusion the basis of our reality and find we are unhappy.
So we throw one illusion away and try another. 
We take up one pretension, and then another. 
Round and round we go.    

The mind that can go beyond this, empty of all such activities, can rest in meditation.  

Meditation is the end of greed. 
Meditation is the end of attachment.
Meditation is the end of anger and aversion. 
Meditation is the end of hatred.
Meditation is the end of misery. 
Meditation is the end of loneliness.
Meditation puts an end to the pursuit for security.
Meditation is the end of self-concern.

In Meditation we rest in Emptiness.   No happiness is to be found elsewhere.

Emptiness is full of immense energy, which radiates to all beings in the form of love and compassion.

Vimalakīrti says:

Oh, bodhisattvas, you should develop empathy for all living beings, for suffering is experienced from beginningless time, and, through your actions, work for the welfare of living beings.  

Manifest the roots of virtue, maintain the primal purity of mind, and practise a lack of craving. 

Strive to become the king of healers, one who works to cure all sicknesses.

Sickness arises from involvement in the process of misunderstanding from beginningless time — it arises from the passions that result from unreal mental constructions.

What is the elimination of this sickness? 

It is the elimination of egoism and possessiveness. 

What is the elimination of egoism and possessiveness? 

It is the freedom from dualism. 

What is freedom from dualism? 

It is the absence of involvement with either the external or the internal. 

What is absence of involvement with either external or internal? 

It is non-deviation, non-fluctuation, and non-distraction from equanimity. 

What is equanimity? 

It is the equality of everything from self to liberation. 


Because both self and liberation are void. 

How can both be void?

As verbal designations, they both are void and neither of them is established in reality. 

Therefore, one who sees such equality makes no difference between sickness and voidness.  His sickness is itself voidness, and that sickness as voidness, is itself void.

Oh, spiritual son,
There are five things you will not find.
You will not find an object outside.
You will not find a mind inside.
You will not find a body in between.
You will not find the unenlightened person you do not desire to be.
You will not find the enlightened buddha you long to be.
