The self-originated Clear Light, which from the very beginning was never born,
Is the child of Rigpa, which is itself without any parents - how amazing!
This self-originated wisdom has not been created by anyone - how amazing!
It has never experienced birth and has nothing in it that could cause it to die - how amazing!
Although it is evidently visible, yet there is no one there who sees it - how amazing!
Although it has wandered through samsara, no harm has come to it - how amazing!
Although it has seen buddhahood itself, no good has come to it - how amazing!
Although it exists in everyone everywhere, it has gone unrecognized - how amazing!
And yet you go on hoping to attain some other fruit than this elsewhere - how amazing!
Even though it is the thing that is most essentially yours, you seek for it elsewhere - how amazing!
