Great Perfection in the Diamond Sutra
The haggling mind disappears!
The expecting mind disappears!
In the Diamond Sutra, it is taught that the three minds of past, present and future are unattainable. Seeing through clear Dharma eye, it points directly to the original purity. Having practiced the Dharma for years and accumulated depth and strength in wisdom and compassion, it is possible to gradually attain the fading away of the latter three minds of haggling, expecting and grasping. The boundary of past and future diminished, at the instant not confined by forms, then all things are in the oneness of a harmonious totality. The Great Perfection as taught in Vajrayana is revealed from such attainment.
