Without as Within Lyrics

2. Without as Within
Through stillness joined to insight true,
All passions slowly annihilated.
With vigour grown strong,
And a mind placed in highest samadhi.

Whatever pours forth from the mind,
Possesses the nature of the owner.
Are waves different from the water?
Their nature like that of space is one and the same.

The same Without as Within...
There, how should another arise?
Neither in Nirvana, neither in Samsara.

Who speaks, who listens, and what is confided?
Like the dust in a dust-filled tunnel,
That which arises in the heart goes to rest in the heart.

Even as water entering water
Has an identical savour,
So faults and virtues are accounted the same
As there's no opposition between them.

The same Without as Within...
There, how should another arise?
As is Nirvana, so is Samsara.

When you strive to gain quiescence by stopping motion,
The quiescence thus gained is ever in motion.
As long as you tarry in the dualism,
How can you realize oneness?
