THE SUCHNESS OF SAMSARA AND NIRVANA by the Fifth Karmapa Deshin Shekpa






Whatever is the suchness of samsara—that is nirvana. 
Whatever is the suchness of thoughts—that is original wisdom. 
Essential reality is beyond being one thing or many things—
May everyone have the ability to realize this.

Translation by Ari Coldfield



From the book "Heart Advice of Karmapa "
