“Work with me, carry on with me, that’s what remains
together as partners, until sky and earth dissolve.
Work with me, carry on with me, that doesn’t die,
while all of you together without end.”
How are we to act that this will be so?
Well, enter into the gist of what He taught —
the undying, reachable every step and stage
as all that’s deathly is discarded, truly that’s it.
Any concoction or creation in this world:
don’t delight or cling to partner Him.
Mind empty and free of Ego-I, doesn’t fool
when no longer seeing anything as dying.
(*) nirandara, though commonly understood as “eternal,” more literally “without end,” which fits somewhat better with classic Buddha-Dhamma.
