The Open Expanse of Space
I pay homage to the great being,
Who pleased the guru through great
And who, through the force of meditating with
great diligence on the profound nature,
Manifested the realization of the eight
kinds of mastery.
The spacious expanse of space, which is
without center or end,
Contains the worlds and so forth, which
have neither top nor bottom,
As well as all the appearances of the
environment and beings.
In the same way, the expanse of mind-itself,
which is beyond all elaborations,
contains all phenomena.
Composed by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, at Rocky Mountain Dharma Center,in the summer of 1991. Commentary on "Eight Kinds Of Mastery"
