Not Elsewhere

e38e78216e7896b276e40fbfafbe4f21Since all phenomena are naturally pure,

cultivate the clear understanding that there are no entities.

Since all phenomena are connected with the enlightened mind,

cultivate the clear understanding of great compassion.

Since all phenomena are naturally luminous,

cultivate the clear understanding of non-apprehension.

Since all entities are impermanent,

cultivate the clear understanding of non-attachment.

Since the mind is the cause for the arising of wisdom,

do not look for the Buddha elsewhere.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Āryātyaya­jñāna­nāma mahāyāna sūtra

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero.
