Song of Experience


Ven. Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche


 Homage to all- knowing wisdom

 Without understanding the nature, exactly as it is

Of the root of our mind, this inner basis for confusion,

You may take mush support from scriptures and reasoning

To describe in dry words, as existing or not existing,

The myriad outer appearance of reality, our deluded experiences.

But now can that destroy the rigid fixation

On a permanent, enduring and solid reality?

Reflect on this meaning and remain evenly

In the basic state of your innate nature.

Besides this vital point, I have nothing more important to say.

Dear friends, please keep in your hearts

These words spoken with pure intention!

This was written with affection by Chokyi Nyinma Rinpoche on the 8th day of the third month in response to several devoted and loving students. May it be meaningful.

To fulfill the wish of our precious teacher, this attempt at a translation was freely made by Erik Pema Kunsang, ka-Nying Shedrup Ling Monastery.
