This Vajra Mind

June 25, 2012

Oh indestructible, glorious mind,
like a diamond, unbroken.

The final refuge,
without you,
there is no solace.

And yet your secret, so subtle,
eludes most.

This Vajra Mind cannot be found.

If they ridicule you,
cast stones,
accuse you of this or that.

This Vajra Mind cannot be found.

If they lift you up,
heap praise upon praise,
and every reward is yours.

This Vajra Mind cannot be found.

Look, there you are,
famous, a star!

This Vajra Mind cannot be found.

Oh, no, unfortunate one!
Your love has left,
your coffers empty!

This Vajra Mind cannot be found.

Not finding you,
all that is left is your naked reality,
freed from conceptions.

Not finding you,
all that can be found,
or not found,
is attained in an instant.

Oh blessed, Highest Self,
I bow before you.
For you, and you alone,
have shown me:

This Vajra Mind cannot be found.
