[55] When all is finally seen as it is, (from The Shodoka)

When all is finally seen as it is,
     nothing hidden behind the fantasies of the mind–
That is Tathagata.
That alone is the state of compassionate knowledge.
Once this is realized, karma and its obstacles
     disappear into emptiness.
But until that moment,
one’s debts must be paid.
