Death and Dying

Dying being my only fear,
I trained my mind in the innate state beyond death
And recognized the essential meaning,
The basic nature of self-liberated samsara.

Unsupported and naked inner awareness,
Discursiveness cleared, the confidence of the view----
I have resolved this to be luminous emptiness.
Now birth and death no longer intimidate me.
