The gateless Gate

"Transcendent knowledge is beyond thought, word, or description.

It neither arises nor ceases, like the identity of space.

It is the domain of individual, self-knowing wakefulness.

I salute this mother of the buddhas of the three times."

Shantarakshita, In praise of Prajnaparamita 



The great gateless Gate




    constantly here         wonderfully clear


truly                               nearer than near


There is no need to struggle and seek


You already are the peak


Simply see 


what you can only be


 No matter what           is        coming and going


you are the silent   knowing   timelessly glowing


Stillness sings in true freedom prior to things


In the full  knowing  of the unstruck gong


 nothing                          more is wrong


Taste this peace so full of ease


simply as it
