  • This Body itself is Emptiness
  • and Emptiness itself is this Body.
  • This Body is not other than Emptiness
  • and Emptiness is not other than this Body.
  • The same is true of Feelings,
  • Perceptions, Mental Formations,
  • and Consciousness.
  • All phenomena bear the mark of Emptiness;
  • their true nature is the nature of
  • no Birth no Death,
  • no Being no Non-being,
  • no Defilement no Purity,
  • no Increasing no Decreasing.
