the Tathagata's inexpressible radiance

There is nothing at all from the very beginning.

Purity of the mind is "not a single thing."

When all forms are abandoned, there is the Buddha,

but even the Buddha can in no way be identified.

If the mind depends on anything, it has no sure haven.

--- from "Original Dwelling Place" by Robert Aitken
