Cosmic Equilibrium

“Don’t bring anything to mind, 
Be it real or imagined. 
Rest uncontrived in the innate state. 
Your own mind, uncontrived, is the body of ultimate enlightenment. 
To remain undistracted within this, is meditation’s essential point. 
Realize the great, boundless, expansive state.
 

In a pellucid ocean,
Bubbles arise and dissolve again.
Just so, thoughts are no different from ultimate reality.
So don't find fault; remain at ease.
Whatever arises, whatever occurs,
Don't grasp - release it on the spot. 

--------

Appearances, sounds, and objects are one's own mind;
There's nothing except mind. 
Mind is beyond the extremes of birth and death.
The nature of mind, awareness,
uses the objects of the five senses, but
does not wander from reality.
In the state of cosmic equilibrium
there is nothing to abandon or practice;
No meditation or post-meditation period."
 
Niguma, Mahamudra as Spontaneous Liberation
