All the Buddhas and all sentient beings

are nothing but the Universal Mind,

beside which nothing exists.

This Mind, which is without beginning,

is unborn and indestructible.

It is not green nor yellow,

and has neither form nor appearance.

It does not belong to the categories

of things which exist or do not exist,

nor can it be thought of

in terms of new or old.

It is neither long nor short,

big nor small,

for it transcends all limits,

measures, traces, and comparisons.
