Nothing Attained, Nothing Spoken Lyrics
Thus I have heard,
The Way is not practised in vain.

What is spoken is Dharma,
What is practised is the Way.

Thus I have seen,
Beyond eye-consciousness:

There is not one thing,
So where can dust alight?

Thus subdue the false heart.
Thus open the Boundless Light.
Seek not in form,
Seek not in sound.
Subdue the false heart.
Embrace the no-self.

Nothing lost, nothing attained.
Nothing named, nothing spoken.

Seek not in form,
Seek not in sound.
Subdue the false heart.
Embrace the no-self.

Like dew-drops, dreams, illusions,
See all marks as no marks.
No mark of self.
No mark of others.
No mark of living beings,
No mark of a life.
Those who look cannot see it,
Those who listen cannot hear...
For there is nothing.

Nothing lost, nothing attained.
Nothing named, nothing spoken.
