A Mother of Pearl

This is the truth.

Nothing to hold on to,
Nothing to let go of,
Nothing to dissolve.

I am the mother-of-pearl.
The world is a vein of silver,
An illusion!

This is the truth.

Nothing to grasp,
Nothing to spurn,
Nothing to dissolve.

I am in all beings.
All beings are in me.

This is the whole truth.

Nothing to embrace,
Nothing to relinquish,
Nothing to dissolve.

-From the Ashtavakra Gita translated by Thomas Byrom
