Clearly and vividly That appears...
When one realizes it, it is vast and without limit;
It is Essence, it is pure awareness.
Singularly reflecting in this bright awareness,
Full of wonder in this pure reflection...
Infinite wonder permeates this serenity;
In this Illumination all intentional efforts vanish.
Silence is the final word.
Reflection is the response to all [manifestation].
Devoid of any effort,
This response is natural and spontaneous...
The Truth of silent illumination
Is perfect and complete.
Chan Master Hung Chih
