Towards the Supreme Illumination(Song of the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa)




Remain within this profoundity, undistracted
No need to discipline body or voice,
All will come spontaneously.
There is nothing in This to realise:
Understand that whatever is apparent is
without own-being.

All phenomena are egoless
and Dharmadhatu, the mind realm,
is completely free of thought.
The great transcending knowledge beyond duality
is the Holy Spirit in which all is sameness.

As the Great River flows on
Whatever meditation sitting you do silently
there is virtue in it.

THIS then is always the Buddha's nature -
Enlightenment.
The word just isn't there
and all us the great Bliss.

All Dharmas, every single thing,
is void in essence,
and being void
cannot be grasped by the mind.
so automatically
we are cleansed of attachment.

Beyond intellect
within the mind nothing arises.
This is the Path of all the Buddhas,
Enlightened ones.


Composed by His Holiness Gyalwa Karmapa in the Monastery Wreathed in a Thousand Rays of Rainbow Ligth, Runtek, The Dharma Centre of Sikkim, August 1974.
