      The Nonduality Highlights -
      "Sometimes naked, sometimes mad,
      now as scholars, now as fools,
      thus they appear on the earth - the free ones!"

      The Great Way is very difficult to express in words. Because it is hard to speak of, just look into beginninglessness, the beginningless beginning. When you reach the point where there is not even any beginninglessness, and not even any nonexistence of beginninglessness, this is the primordial. The primordial Way cannot be assessed; there is nothing in it that can be assessed. What verbal explanation is there for it? We cannot explain it, yet we do explain it - where does the explanation come from? The Way that can be explained is only in doing. What is doing? It is attained by nondoing. This nondoing begins in doing.

      Buddha Knowledge
      Just as the water flows under the ground
      So those who seek it find it,
      Without thought, without end,
      Its effective power all-pervasive,
      Buddha Knowledge is also like this,
      Being in all creatures' minds;
      If any work on it with diligence,
      They will soon find the light of knowledge.

      The Profound Definitive Meaning

      By Milarepa
      (1052 - 1135)

      English version by Marpa Translation Committee

      For the mind that masters view the emptiness dawns
      In the content seen not even an atom exists
      A seer and seen refined until they're gone
      This way of realizing view, it works quite well

      When meditation is clear light river flow
      There is no need to confine it to sessions and breaks
      Meditator and object refined until they're gone
      This heart bone of meditation, it beats quite well

      When you're sure that conducts work is luminous light
      And you're sure that interdependence is emptiness
      A doer and deed refined until they're gone
      This way of working with conduct, it works quite well

      When biased thinking has vanished into space
      No phony facades, eight dharmas, nor hopes and fears,
      A keeper and kept refined until they're gone
      This way of keeping samaya, it works quite well

      When you've finally discovered your mind is dharmakaya
      And you're really doing yourself and others good
      A winner and won refined until they're gone
      This way of winning results, it works quite well.
