When sunlight falls on a crystal

When sunlight falls on a crystal, lights of all colors of the rainbow appear; yet they have no substance that you can grasp. Likewise, all thoughts in their infinite variety- devotion, compassion, harmfulness, desire- are utterly without substance. That is the mind of the Buddha. There is no thought that is something other than voidness.

--Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
