Buddha — Photo-Artistry by kenne

The Diamond Sutra

All appearance is delusion.

If you view all appearance as nonappearance,

Then that view is your true nature.

Do not become attached to any thoughts

That arise in the mind.

If you see form as the Absolute,

If you search out the Absolute with your voice,

You are practicing the wrong path,

And you cannot see your true self.

All compounded things are like a dream,

A phantom,  a bubble, or a reflection.

They are like dew or lightning.

Thus should you view them.
