Thoughts as a fault

“You need not make efforts to create non-conceptuality. You need not regard thoughts as a fault. And so that your practice does not succumb to famine, from the beginning have a bountiful crop. Not searching for a state that is calmly resting, vividly clear, and filled with bliss, bring into your experience whatever arises without taking it up or discarding it.”

– Drubtop Urgyenpa (1230-1312), Karma Kagyu lineage holder (between the 2nd and 3rd Karmapas)
