The Ultimate Attainment

​”The Ultimate Attainment”

The past is already past.

Don’t try to regain it.

The present does not stay.

Don’t try to touch it,

From moment to moment.

The future has not come;

Don’t think about it

Beforehand.

Whatever comes to the eye,

Leave it be.

There are no commandments

To be kept;

There’s no filth to be cleansed.

With empty mind really

Penetrated, the dharmas

Have no life.

When you can be like this,

You’ve completed

The ultimate attainment.
