behind the form, the formless
behind the named, the nameless

Just like waves forming on top of the ocean, so consciousness gives rise to all the different forms and experiences we have, to all life and death. But consciousness itself remains unchanged, untouched, undying. The change occurs only on the surface, as the bottom of the ocean is forever unaffected by the waves on top.
Are waves not also the ocean?
