Chant No. 2

Beings are numberless I vow to save them all.

In saving be empty to go along with all
Let mind arise without fixing it anywhere.

Don’t let words ‘thing’ the world
Be present at events not things.

Once there’s understanding forget words
Serenity is the cessation of knowledge in understanding.

No truth has ever been taught by anyone
No truth is the higher truth.

To understand letting go you must let go.
