Mind is like space, without birth and death.
Like space, mind has no centre or periphery.
Like space, mind is not bound or liberated.*
Like space, mind has neither high nor low.

— Last Words Of Gyalwa Gotsangpa (Gonpo Jorje)

* As the mind’s pure nature has never been truly trapped,
when defilements that cloud it dissipate, the mind is not truly freed.
