thank you for the hint.
“Wise ones reach enlightenment by putting into practice
The samadhi of dwelling in love,
Of dwelling in compassion, of acting with joy,
And with constant equanimity toward all existences.

ninth chapter, “The Patience of the Profound Dharma.”
今以佛眼觀之佛與眾生同住解脫之床。無此無彼無二平等。
Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.

Śrī Singha said to Padmasambhava:
Since buddhas and sentient beings are inseparable and the same, it is necessary to respect all sentient beings as being on the same level with the buddhas. Can you?
