within purity, grasping does not exist

a very simple affair



undergoing birth and death

is just due to grasping at objects.

When we reflect back on the mind that

grasps at objects, we see that the real identity

of mind is originally pure. Within this purity, grasping

mind does not exist. Within nirvana, fundamentally

there are no thoughts moving; the movement

is ever still. Being still, there is

no seeking.
