The Progressive Stages of
Meditation on Emptiness V

Middle-Way Autonomist:
View & Meditation

Like a dream, an illusion, an echo, or a mirage,
Since they are beyond having a nature that is one or many,
All phenomena are great emptiness. like space.
When certainty in this becomes stable, this is the view.
Within this great space-like emptiness,
Break down all other reference points
And focus again and again on mere space-like emptiness.
Finally, rest free of apprehending emptiness.

 At the Dzogchen Palace of Appearance-Emptiness, Sherab Lodro [Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche] spoke this extemporaneously, whereupon Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche immediately wrote it down.
