One must remain in the vastness

by Shabkar (Shabkar Tsogdruk Rangdrol)

English version by Matthieu Ricard
Original Language Tibetan

One must remain in the vastness,
     alert and lucid,
Letting one's gaze encompass
     the infinity of the sky,
As though seated on the summit
     of a mountain open
     to all the horizons.
