Great Middle Way

1340359be6476bf5722cf577dba3cd48As in a dream, all external objects perceived with the five senses are not there; they are mental fabrications.

As in a magic show, things are made to appear by a temporary conjunction of causes, circumstances and connections.

As in a visual aberration, things appear to be there, yet there is nothing.

As in a mirage, things appear but are not real.

As in an echo, things can be perceived but there is nothing there, either outside or inside.

As in a city of clouds, there is neither a dwelling nor anyone to dwell.

As in a reflection, things appear but have no reality of their own.

As in an apparition, there are all sorts of forms but they are not really there.

―Patrul Rinpoche
