no(thingness





.



Know all things to be like this: 
A mirage, a cloud castle, 
A dream, an apparition, 
Without essence, but with qualities that can be seen. 
 
Know all things to be like this:  
As the moon in a bright sky 
In some clear lake reflected, 
Though to that lake the moon has never moved. 
 
Know all things to be like this:  
As an echo that derives 
From music, sounds, and weeping, 
Yet in that echo is no melody. 
 
Know all things to be like this:  
As a magician makes illusions 
Of horses, oxen, carts and other things, 
Nothing is as it appears.


–Samadhiraja (Moon Lamp) Sutra
