Dzogchen Practice Tips – Number 3
Dzogchen – the 4th time, timeless time. Beyond past, present and future
Padmasambhava’s instructions, cutting through the concept of time,
from ‘Self-Liberation Through Seeing with Naked Awareness’
You should relinquish all notions of the past and abandon all precedents.
You should cut off all plans and expectations with respect to the future.
And in the present, you should not grasp (at thoughts that arise) but
allow (the mind) to remain in a state like the sky.
Since there is nothing upon which to meditate (while in the primordial
state), there is no need to meditate.
And since there does not exist any distraction here, you continue in this
state of stable mindfulness without distraction.
In this state which is without meditation and without any distraction, you
observe everything with a naked (awareness).
Your own awareness is inherently knowing, inherently clear, and
When it arises, it is called the Bodhichitta, “the enlightened mind.”
