The view is original wisdom, which is empty.
Meditation, clear light free of fixation,
Conduct, continual flow without attachment,
Fruition is nakedness stripped of every stain.

This view, the original wisdom which is empty,
Risks getting lost in just being talk and no more.
If certainty which is in touch with what is meant does not follow,
The words will not manage to free you of clinging to self,
And that's why definitive certainty means so much.

The meditation, clear light free of fixation,
Risks getting lost in just being settling.
If original wisdom does not emerge from within you,
You might settle steadily but this will not set you free.
The wisdom does not come of dullness and agitation,
And that's why non-wandering mindfulness means so much.

This conduct, continual flow without attachment,
Risks getting lost in only being a pretense.
If the view and meditation are not included,
The eight worldly dharmas may mix with your yogic pursuits,
And that's why the freedom from clinging and veils means so much.

Fruition as nakedness stripped of every defect,
Risks geting clothed in the garments of attributes.
If delusion is not overcome from its source on the inside,
Your practice may aim very far, but fall very short.
And that's why correcting delusion means so much.

Thanks. It's all there.

The Blessed One said:

"What is the All? Simply the eye & forms, ear & sounds, nose & aromas, tongue & flavors, body & tactile sensations, intellect & ideas. This, monks, is called the All. Anyone who would say, 'Repudiating this All, I will describe another,' if questioned on what exactly might be the grounds for his statement, would be unable to explain, and furthermore, would be put to grief. Why? Because it lies beyond range." Sabba Sutta.
