Self-appearing Illusion

Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche

All these forms---appearance emptiness
Like a rainbow with its shining glow
In the reaches of appearance emptiness
Just let go and go where no mind goes

Every sound is sound and emptiness
Like the sound of an echo's roll
In the reaches of sound and emptiness
Just let go and go where no mind goes

Every feeling is bliss and emptiness
Way beyond what words can show
In the reaches of bliss and emptiness
Just let go and go where no mind goes

All awareness---awareness emptiness
Way beyond what thought can know
In the reaches of awareness emptiness
Let awareness go -oh, where no mind goes

Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, “Songs of Realization” P 84

Hey, hey, lucky students, diligent, faithful and smart,
Take a look at mind's nature---simplicity, unborn.
When reference points and signs dissolve in certainty
Don't strive, strain, or stop; just relax naturally.

Look nakedly at the inexpressible---
Mind's basic nature, bliss and emptiness.
Relaxed, at ease, fixation-free
All that binds is free in bliss-emptiness.
Within this clear light, the dharmadhatu,
take a look at the play of the unborn mind---
Mind's play manifests as appearance-emptiness.

Pure awareness, from beginningless time,
Naturally present, transcending mind---
Clinging to this view as best dissolves naturally
When we realize mind's reality.
Then tigles of light and rainbows can shine
But since we don't think of them as real, these dzogchenpas are

Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, “The Essential Points Of Mahamudra, Dzogchen, And The Middle Way ”129
