The Ten simile of Phenomena Diamond Cutter Sutra

 

གང་དག་ང་ལ་སྒྲར་ཤེས་པ།།

ལོག་པར་སྤོང་བས་ཞུགས་པ་སྟེ།།

སྐྱེ་བོ་དེ་དག་ང་མི་མཐོང༌།།

Those who see my body as ordinary form,

And hear my voice as ordinary sound,

Have set out upon a mistaken path.

Such people do not truly see me.

Diamond Cutter Sūtra

 

སྐར་མ་རབ་རིབ་མར་མེ་དང༌།།

སྒྱུ་མ་ཟིལ་པ་ཆུ་བུར་དང་།།

རྨི་ལམ་གློག་དང་སྤྲིན་ལྟ་བུ།།

འདུས་བྱས་དེ་ལྟར་བལྟ་བར་བྱ།།

Like a star, hallucination, candle,

Magical illusion, dewdrop, bubble,

Dream, lightning or a cloud—

Know all compounded phenomena to be like this.

Diamond Cutter Sūtra
