Princess Gomadevi's Song of Realization

Here is one of the original songs known as Realizations of the Eighteen Scriptures of the Mind Section Expressed in Song by the Vidyadharas.

The realization of the Collection of Precious Gemstones, the spontaneous meditation song about nonarising, was sung in these words by Princess Gomadevi at the Hermitage of Conquerors during the latter half of night.
