All phenomena* is impermanent,
being rising and falling dharmas.*
With rising and falling eradicated already,
it is stillness with extinguishment** as bliss.

Śākyamuni Buddha
(Mahāparinirvāṇa Sūtra)

* phenomena of mind and matter
** Nirvāṇa: peace with extinction of the fires
of greed, hatred and delusion 

(The first two lines are of the Relative Truth [俗谛];
the last two lines are of the Ultimate Truth [真谛];
the in between is of the Middle Truth [中谛].)
