ON THE OTHER SHORE OF NON-EGO
Without remembering or thinking of death
You have indulged in words and arguments.
For the past thirty-two years
You have failed to realize this fact.
But you can gain far more
If you devote yourself to actual practice.
Alas, in this time of defilement,
Great are people’s passions and desires,
And unbearably glib are sinful people’s tongues.
Since the faulty attachments are themselves Illumination,
There is no-thing outstanding
To be known as “Wisdom.”
This is the right way of practicing the Truth;
Empty words are useless and help little!
