The essential practice is about nothing other than realizing the nature of your mind. It is only your mind that experiences. There is nothing other in this world that can experience. The five outer and inner elements, comprising the world and your body, don’t experience anything. Neither do the five sense organs. Thus, it is this mind that we need to be one hundred percent clear about.
