The Great Garuda states:
The implications of the threefold encounter-the display that manifests as an objective field of experience can be discerned within the “interval” between sense objects and mind, with nothing that arises being rejected.
Just as myriad dreams are subsumed within sleep, being natural manifestations that are empty and without true existence, so too the phenomena of the universe, whether of samsara or nirvana, are embraced by mind. They manifest within mind, the vast expanse, but have no substance.
Just as the universe manifests within the realm of space, samsara and nirvana arise within the scope of awareness as its unceasing dynamic energy. Of what are they the dynamic energy, you wonder? Just as dreams arise from the dynamic energy of sleep, owing to non-recognition of awareness beings of the three realms and the apparent phenomena of the universe manifest from the dynamic energy that arises as ordinary mind-the eight modes of consciousness. Like confused perceptions manifesting from the dynamic energy of a virulent fever, the apparent phenomena of samsara arise naturally from the confusion of ordinary mind, yet even as they arise they are pure as natural manifestations of emptiness.
The nature of mind alone is the seed of everything. Anything in conditioned existence or nirvana unfolds from it. Homage to mind, which is like the wish-fulfilling gem that grants the fruition of one’s desires. –The Treasury of Songs of Realization
Within the vast expanse- unnameable and free of elaboration one comes to a decisive experience of the phenomena of the world of appearances and possibilities, whether of samsara or nirvana. Within the vast expanse-the unborn simultaneity of awareness and emptiness one comes to a decisive experience concerning the phenomena of one’s own self-knowing awareness. Within the vast expanse-which has nothing to do with the recognition or non-recognition of awareness one comes to a decisive experience concerning the phenomena of awakened mind. Within the vast expanse-with no transition or change throughout the three times one comes to a decisive experience concerning timelessly and totally empty phenomena.
In awareness, a supreme evenness free of extremes, phenomena-the world of appearances and possibilities, whether of samsara or nirvana-arise ceaselessly. Even as they arise, neither mind nor phenomena can he characterized as “things.” They are embraced within openness, the nature of phenomena
