Contemplation: The Truth of The Unborn

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your contemplation:
To explain the truth of the unborn: This means that at the very moment when we see the lion come into existence, it is actually the gold that comes into existence. There is nothing apart from the gold. Although the lion may come into and go out of existence, the substance of gold in fact never increases or decreases. This is called the truth of the unborn.
From Fazang's Treatise of the Golden Lion (punctuation altered).
