Right from the beginning, in the unborn nature there is nothing to be refuted and nothing to be established. At the level of the unborn, there is no distinction of attaining nirvana or not attaining nirvana.

The unborn nature itself is also not there, because there is no thing which is unborn. There is no relative and no absolute. There are no buddhas and no beings.

There is no view and nothing to meditate on. There is no conduct and no result. The mind is the meditation; the mind free of concepts rests in its own place.

There is nothing that recognizes and nothing that is distracted. There are no characteristics, and the meditation is very clear.
