|Standing Buddha from Sahri Bahlol, Pakistan, 2nd-3rd c. CE|
All phenomena are like a reflection,
clear and pure without turbulence,
ungraspable and indescribable, purely
derived from cause and effect without
self-nature and location.
If you, by understanding phenomena
in this way, work for the welfare of
sentient beings without discrimination,
you will be born as sons or daughters
of the Buddhas.
