Pure Appearances Shine

Khenpo Tsültrim Gyamtso Rinpoche 


Quote of the Week
October 21, 2011 



Pure Appearances Shine

Phenomena are samsara, confused projections
Pure being is nirvana past all grief
These two are not one and the same nor do they differ
The one's like ice, the other's like its water

If you see through phenomena, samsara's confused projections
Pure being manifests for you
This is transformation, pure appearances shine
Like reflections on the melted ice's water

Verses from "A Summary of Maitreya's Text, Distinguishing Phenomena and Pure Being" composed by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, Dechen Choling, July 2004. Translated and arranged by Jim Scott.
