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)
