Do not form views in the
world through either
knowledge, virtuous conduct, or religious
observances; likewise, avoid thinking of oneself as
being either superior, inferior, or equal to others.
The wise let go of the
self and being free of
attachments they depend not on knowledge. Nor
do they dispute opinions or settle into any view.
For those who have no
wishes for either extremes
of becoming or non-becoming, here or in another
existence, there is no settling into the views held
Nor do they form the least
notion in regard to
views seen, heard, or thought out. How could one
influence those wise ones who do not grasp at any

Longchenpa means great
expanse, so I heard.
Devoted to diving within,
Relaxing as the great expanse of reality,
The wide open,
natural stateless state.
Simply seeing and letting go,
Neither sleeping nor waking up,
No birth, no death,
Blazing forth as I.
Great traditionless tradition,
Lineage of only I,
What is there left to do?
I roam happily,
Abiding as myself,
Singularity in multiplicity.

"Self is everywhere,
shining forth from all beings,
vaster than the vast, subtler than the most subtle,
unreachable, yet nearer than breath, than
Eye cannot see it, ear
cannot hear it nor tongue
utter it; only in deep absorption can the mind,
grown pure and silent, merge with the formless
He who finds it is free;
he has found himself; he
has solved the great riddle; his heart is forever at
Whole, he enters the Whole.
Perceiving the truth, he
becomes the truth; he
passes beyond all suffering, beyond death; all the
knots of his heart are loosed."
--from the Mundaka
Upanishads, written more than
2,500 years ago
