Daily prayer of a Dzogpachenpo

I take the essential nature as the path — that is my patrilineal Dharma. I am not bound by the reification of visualizations, recitations, worship, and accomplishment, for my way is one of nonmeditation, nonworship, and nonaccomplishment. My own grounding, transcending the intellect, is infinite, with no boundaries, without antidotes, modifications, alterations, or intellectual imputations, and uncontaminated by anything to observe, maintain, or investigate. Having released into openness — unstructured, without fabrication or referential object, in the yoga of inactivity, transcending good and bad, hope and fear, rejection and acceptance — there was wide-open clarity, with nothing to do. In the self-emergent expanse of originally present primordial consciousness, by transforming into the unmodified nature of loose release, the knots of dualistic grasping were directly dissolved. Once saṃsāra and nirvāṇa were purified as the dharmakāya, the bonds of saṃsāra and nirvāṇa were cut from my heart.
