Sri Manjusrimitra's Meditation Instructions
A Rosemont Journey's insight:

"The nature of your own mind-essence is, from the very beginning, none other than Buddha. This mind, in and of itself, is both birthless and deathless. It is simply like the sky. If the intrinsic truth of the nonduality of all phenomena is understood in its totality, and if this view is merely sustained in faith, without making any kind of effort, then that is how one should practice meditation."
