Your Present Naked Awarened

5. Your present naked awareness How amazing! Your present, naked awareness-- Unspoiled by thoughts of past, present, or future, Not fettered by mind grasping to so-called "meditation" Nor falling into a pervasive blankness of so-called "non-meditation"-- The natural state nakedly sustained, Is the practice of Great Perfection. Regardless of what thoughts arise during that practice, To reject negative ones or foster positive ones is unnecessary. Mere recognition liberates them in their own ground. Take this liberation upon arising as the path's key point. Destroy whatever meditative experiences arise, and relax. A tantric practitioner without fixation is deeply content. You've reached your goal of contentment right now. What is the use of numerous enumerations of Buddha's teachings When you discover Buddha Kuntu Zangpo within yourself? Keep the meaning of these words close to your heart. --from Wisdom Nectar: Dudjom Rinpoche's Heart Advice by Dudjom Jigdral Yeshe Dorje, translated by Ron Garry, a Tsadra Foundation Series book published by Snow Lion Publications
