Effortless compassion

Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche

An effortless compassion can arise for all beings
who have not realized their true nature.

So limitless is it that if tears could express it,
you would cry without end.

Not only compassion, but tremendous skillful means
can be born when you realize the nature of mind.

Also you are naturally liberated from all suffering and fear,
such as the fear of birth, death and the intermediate state.

Then if you were to speak of the joy and bliss that arise
from this realization, it is said by the buddhas that
if you were to gather all the glory, enjoyment, pleasure
and happiness of the world and put it all together,
it would not approach one tiny fraction of the bliss
that you experience upon realizing the nature of mind.

Thanks for posting a realization song from Khempo Nyoshul.
I'm grateful I found your blog to remind me of him.

I Never met him when he was alive, only prayed in front of his dead body shortly after his death in France, Dordogne. I feel I really missed an outstanding master.
