Look at the mountainside over there!
When the weather changes in a moment,
There’s a yellow alpine meadow
Below the clouds and mist.

Look at your own body! Look!
If you just look at your own body,
When the years, months,
And days have passed,
A lifetime has vanished in a flash.

Look at the truth
Of the way things really are!
It’s the primordial,
Naturally radiant, buddha body of reality.
Leave the mind in that unfabricated state!
