Mind And Buddha As One
[It] is [the] mind [that] becomes Buddha, [and it] is [the] mind [that] is Buddha, [with the] mind externally without Buddha, [with the] Buddha externally without [the] mind. For example, [with] complete gold becoming [a] vessel, [the] complete vessel is gold, [with the] gold externally without [the] vessel, [with the] vessel externally without gold.
