ཀུན་རྫོབ་དང་ནི་དོན་དམ་སྟེ། །

འདི་ནི་བདེན་པ་གཉིས་སུ་འདོད། །
དོན་དམ་བློ་ཡི་སྤྱོད་ཡུལ་མིན། །

བློ་ནི་ཀུན་རྫོབ་ཡིན་པར་བརྗོད། །

The relative and the ultimate
These, we claim, are the two truths.
The ultimate lies beyond the reach of mind,
For the ordinary mind is only relative.

Śāntideva, Introduction to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life, IX, 2
