keeping the mind in perfect tranquility and free from any attachment to appearances." "So I say to you - This is how to contemplate our conditioned existence in this fleeting world:" "Like a tiny drop of dew, or a bubble floating in a stream; Like a flash of lightning in a summer cloud, Or a flickering lamp, an illusion, a phantom, or a dream." "So is all conditioned existence to be seen." Thus spoke Buddha.
By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs. By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity. - Longchen Rabjam -
