Guru's Kindness

 There are so many differing phenomena
Without, within and all throughout samsara and beyond
And with each and every one of these what you must realize
They neither from self, from other nor both, nor without a cause arise
Since these do not arise at all in any of these ways
There's no arising at all for them, like the moon on the water's face


In genuine reality arising and the rest
Are quite beyond conceptual fabrication at its best
So these are mere appearances which do exist it seems
But only in a relative way as interdependencies
They're indivisible void-appearance like reflected forms
And even certainty gained in this from the guru's kindness comes


Two verses from the song The Meaning of the Three Kinds of Confidence by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche who spoke it extemporaneously in the Garden of Translation near the Great Stupa of Boudanath in Nepal. Originally translated by Ari Goldfield and revised for song by Jim Scott, Denmark, March 1998.
