All phenomena are ultimately selfless,
empty, and free from conceptual elaboration.
In their dynamic they resemble an illusion,
mirage, dream, or reflected image,
A celestial city, an echo, a reflection of the moon in water,
a bubble, an optical illusion, or an intangible emanation.
You should know that all things of cyclic existence and nirvana
Accord in nature with these ten similes of illusory phenomena.
All phenomena are naturally uncreated.
They neither abide nor cease, neither come nor go.
They are without objective referent,
signless, ineffable, and free from thought.
The time has come for this truth to be realized!
