The nature of mind is non-arising
Throughout time and space nothing is illuminated
There is nothing in front of you
No need for hard work or skill
Brightness and tranquility are just as they are
In one-mindedness there are no wandering thoughts
Don't destroy the emotions of people
Within mind there is no environment
Favor and disgrace do not change it
There are neither people nor seeing
The wisdom of stavakas and pratyekabuddhas
Do not concern yourself with anything
