Tilopa’s Ganges Mahamudra–Part 2

When you gaze into the sky,

Seeing stops.

Likewise, when mind looks at mind,

The flow of thinking stops and you come to the deepest awakening.

Ganges Mahamudra

The darkness of a thousand eons cannot dim

The brilliant radiance that is the essence of the sun.

Likewise, eons of samsara cannot dim

The sheer clarity that is the essence of your mind.
