Yung-Chia Ta-Shih - When the absolute Reality is known
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
When the absolute Reality is known, it is seen to be without any individual selves, and devoid of any objective forms;
All past [mental and physical] actions which lead to hell are instantly wiped away.
After the Awakening, there is only vast Emptiness; this vast universe of forms ceases to exist [outside of one's Self].
Here, one sees neither sin nor bliss, neither loss nor gain.
In the midst of the eternal Serenity, no questions arise;
The dust of ignorance which has accumulated on the unpolished mirror for ages,
Is now, and forever, cleared away in the vision of Truth
