This is the essence of (the doctrine of) deathlessness,
by which Buddhahood is attained without meditation,
By the force of spiritual experience of these precepts,
(which consummate) Sutra and Tantra.
In this way this body, the product of karmic evolution,
Naturally emerges as the body of primordial awareness.
The evolved body becomes the embodiment of the deity;
Pristine, no attachment to it–one meditates thus.
It is inseparable from mind,
And, for mind, substantial reality cannot be established:
Then, where does one find there something that dies?
So-called “death” is merely an idea:
Ideas and concepts, the phenomena of samsara
and nirvana can not be established as real.
The object and the cause of transmigration
dissolve naturally at the very point of their origin.
The consciousness in which absolute meaning is found,
Is deathless, unlimited; it is the supreme fruit.
Remembering this, Buddhahood is revealed:
This, the vital heart of the dakini, must be held to like life itself. ”
Through this prayer of Ever-present Good
May everyone come to full and complete awakening
In the palace of the realm of totality.
The ground of everything is not made of anything.
In this indescribable naturally present expanse
There are not even the concepts of patterned or free.
Know this and you are awake.
Do not know this and you are a sentient being wandering in samsara.
May all beings in the three realms
Know the indescribable ground.
