This is what Longchenpa says:
Experience may arise in the mind but it is neither mind nor anything but mind; it is a vivid display of absence, like magical illusion, in the very moment inconceivable and unutterable. All experience arising in the mind, at its inception, know it as absence! Constantly deconstructing, investigating keenly, not even the slightest substance can be found; and in the undivided moment of nondual perception we abide in the natural state of perfection. Just as the objective field is absent in reality, so 'the knower' - in actuality pure mind, in essence an absence, is like the clear sky: know it in its ineffable reality! Absent when scrutinized, absent when ignored, not even an iota of solid matter is attested; so all aspects of experience are always absent know it as nothing but magical illusion!
There's an in-depth discussion on idealism by Longchenpa in the introduction to Manjushrimitra's "Primordial Experience".
