Liberation from Asuric War

Acquire the view!

Sung upon reading a post from Dzongsar Khenpo.

Yes!

A song!

homage to the gurus,
homage to those that have went
before and showed we-view the
search, for these doors,
it was never in the
door, it was the
search.

go friends!

Far beyond perverted views,
oneness-view dwells in nibbana,
the lotus bloomed, now a palmyra stump,
the lamp extinguished; smoke remains,
for so long self-view has wandered
like pitch, to the monkey’s paw,
samsara, lost, disconnected,
con-fuse-ed, on churning
waves, yet here,
on this back,
of a turtle,
floating,
sitting,
calm,
pristine,
absorbed,
far beyond,
the entirety of
the sea is seen for
what it is, the great
wave comes; soon this
turtle will overturn,
do not delay,
do not,
for
there is
not another
day…

the land of
the flat
bottom
friends.

Just as it is not self,
Just as it is not other,
So too of days,
So too of nights,
Illusions,
far beyond perverted views.

Waves, on the sea,
the sea is exactly samsara,
go! go beyond!
far beyond!!!
so greatly far beyond.

The dakinis sing,
“oh, the state of mind like this”1
“<I|self-view> <feel|vedana> a little disconnected”1
“<I|self-view> can’t believe the <way|eightfold-path> <things|dharmakaya> [the wheel turns, albeit slowly]turned <out|in>”1
beyond out,
beyond in,
beyond out and in,
beyond neither out nor in,
the lamp, put out!

Go friends!
Go beyond!
Acquire the view!
For only those,
with a little
dust…….in the
eyes.

It’s all true, all of it.
Every last letter.
suffering IS liberation
it’s the -ing to -ion,
action,
kamma,
nibbana,
nekamma,
where meditation
is optimat-ion.

Go… straight at it!
for the benefit,
of all beings.

Friends of the world,
escaping down crocus,
threads – away from
Asuric War.

for the benefit,
of all beings.
for the benefit,
of all beings.

Limitless,
refrain.
like,
rain.
