Dzogchen Verse (4)

The Six Vajra Verses
Although apparent phenomena manifest as diversity yet this diversity is non-dual, and of all the multiplicity of individual things that exist none can be confined in a limited concept. Staying free from the trap of any attempt to say it's 'like this', or 'like that', it becomes clear that all manifested forms are aspects of the infinite formless, and, indivisible from it are self-perfected. Seeing that everything is self-perfected from the very beginning, the disease of striving for any achievement comes to an end of its own accord, and just remaining in the natural state as it is, the presence of non-dual contemplation continuously, spontaneously arises. ( Namkhai Norbu, C. The Crystal and the Way of Light )
