Just let go of everything! That is the essence!
-Patrül Rinpoché, Advice to Myself
Mind without understanding its nature is what Buddhists call ignorance.
-Khenpo Sherab Sangpo
Khenpo Sherab Sangpo, a professor of Tibetan Buddhism in the Nyingma Lineage (bodhicittasangha.org), offers teachings on how to relax our mind and to recognize its innermost nature through teachings on three types of meditation: 1) renunciation mind to lessen our clinging to permanence (permanent self or phenomena); 2) bodhicitta mind to lessen our selfishness and to increase our great love for all beings; and 3) dzogchen mind to recognize the true nature of mind by cutting the root of our ignorance. The teaching ends with a guided resting meditation to help us let go and just rest in our basic goodness (buddha nature) by not furthering anything. As Khenpo Sherab Sangpo advises—by quoting Patrül Rinpoché—the essential point is to not further anything. Just let go of everything and rest.
