Beginning and end depend on nothing but imagination.
Through windlike formation,
Karma and afflictions are created.
Through these, the skandhas, dhatus, and ayatanas—
All dualistically appearing phenomena—are displayed.
The one who adopts and rejects these is mistakenness.
Through rejecting [mind’s] own appearances, where should they cease?
Through adopting [mind’s] own appearances, what should come about?
Is clinging to duality not delusive?
Understanding this is indeed said to be the remedy,
But the thought of nonduality is not real [either],
For the lack of thought [just] turns into a thought.
You thought about emptiness, dissecting form and so on into parts,
Are you not mistaken yourself?
Nevertheless, this was taught in order to stop the clinging to reality.
All is neither real nor delusive—
Held to be like [a reflection of] the moon in water by the learned.
Just this ordinary mind
Is called “dharmadhatu” and “Heart of the victors.”
It is neither to be improved by the noble ones
Nor made worse by sentient beings.
