Aspiration for Mahamudra

All dharmas are projections of mind.
As for mind, there is no mind; mind’s nature is empty.
Empty and unceasing, mind appears as anything.
Investigating it well, may I settle the basic points.

Projections which never existed in themselves, have been confused as objects.
Awareness itself, due to ignorance, has been confused as a self.
Through the power of dualistic fixation I wander in the realm of
existence.
May ignorance and confusion be completely resolved.

It doesn’t exist: even buddhas do not see it.
It doesn’t not exist: it is the basis of samsara and nirvana.
No contradiction: two-in-one, the middle way.
May I realize the Nature of Mind.

-The 3rd Karmapa, Rangjung Dorje
