Like a mirage in the springtime, the mind is found bewildered; animals imagine water but there is no reality to it.
There is here nothing but thought construction, it is like an image in the air; when they thus understand all, there is nothing to know.
–adapted from the Lankavatara Sutra, translated by D.T. Suzuki
From “Teachings of the Buddha,” edited by Jack Kornfield, 1993. Reprinted by arrangement with Shambhala Publications, Boston, www.shambhala.com.
