"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."
-Ra Lotsawa, All-pervading Melodious Drumbeats
"You must experience that the various thoughts, in whatever form they arise, are an empty appearance and not a definable entity."
-Clarifying the Natural State pg. 33
