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

 

is

 

    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

 

is
