Like mirages, dew-drops and water bubbles - original



A much loved quote from the vajra-cahidaka-nāma-mahāyāna Sutra

- This particular version from Dege Kangyur #19 vol 34 - 'perfection of wisdom' ༼ཀ༽ ཤེས་རབ་ཀྱི་ཕ་རོལ་ཏུ་ཕྱིན་པ་རྡོ་རྗེ་གཅོད་པ་ཞེས་བྱ་བ་ཐེག་པ་ཆེན་པོའི་མདོ།


Created as a Tibetan calligraphy study piece, in Tibetan Umé script and playfully decorated with a number of Tashi's round seals to resemble bubbles. 



Like stars, mist and candle flames,


mirages, dew-drops and water bubbles.


Like dreams, lightning and clouds,


in this way will I view all composite phenomena.
