“By examining diverse appearances, the meditator will experience the indivisible union of appearance and its intrinsic emptiness as being devoid of any identifiable essence. This union of mind and appearance should be understood to be like the union between the consciousness in a dream and its appearance. For instance, in a dream the emergence of diverse appearances is not different from the mind’s unceasing manifestation. The emergence of the diverse appearances and the mind should, therefore, be understood as being an indivisible union.”—Dakpo Tashi Namgyal, Mahamudra—The Moonlight
