Form is none other than emptiness;
Emptiness is none other than form.
Form is emptiness;
Emptiness is form.
Einstein says:Mass is none other than energy;
Energy is none other than Mass;
Mass is energy, MC2=E;
Energy is Mass, E=MC2.
Than who am I?Buddha answers:
You are neither form nor emptiness;
You are the Nirvana beyond words.
Einstein replies:Energy condenses into mass;
Mass forms planets;
Planets evolve lives on them.
You are the cosmic consciousness trapped in mass,
A tiny part of cosmic dance.
All living organisms reveal the secret of life,Bacteria, grasses and trees, insects and birds
All have dreams as I have,
When a flower puts up her show,
Is she not the same as a burgeoning woman
Having an erotic dream of procreation?
Am I the energy or the consciousness
Which side is the coin itself, I insist?
To this question, Einstein busies himself
With watering the plants in his garden,
While Buddha sits in silence for all eternity.
