wildwood delights

There, just as reflections appear in a pond,

So all the world's sundry phenomena present the paradox

of being nothing and yet have presence;

They are like phantoms, a mirage, the moons reflection in the water;

This is called "devoid of any reality" understand this as a certainty.

(The Story of Wildwood Delights from A Visionary Journey by Longchenpa trans. by Herbert Guenther)
