Relax with a Song of Realisation – The Song of Heruka

Existence and peace are equality,
Free from all conceptuality,
So striving and straining to accomplish some goal–
Oh, what a tiring thing to do!

Body and mind, non-duality–
Spacious and relaxed transparency.
To think that body and mind are two different things
Is a neurotic, crazy, afflicted thing to do!

Self and other not two in dharmakaya,
To cling to good and bad – I pity the fool!

– Dombi Heruka, quoted in The Sun of Wisdom

    “Truth is not a reward for good behaviour, nor a prize for passing some tests. It cannot be brought about. It is the primary, the unborn, the ancient source of all that is. You are eligible because you are. You need not merit truth. It is your own. Just stop running away by running after. Stand still. Be quiet.” – Nisargadatta Maharaj
