This self-knowing cannot possibly form thoughts. Without conceptualizing ‘a mind,’ since it is not something to be conceived, this original wakefulness, cognizant yet thought-free, is like the wisdom of the Tathagata. Therefore, it is taught, “Realize that luminous mind is the mind of original wakefulness, and don’t seek an enlightenment separate from that.”
