Ex. Purity is in the eye of the beholder. What purifies / transmutes samsara into nirvana is the direct wisdom of being fully aware of the true nature & dynamic of everything, of Reality / Mind. Fabrications (physical, conceptual, mental) in themselves are not bad / impure, not good / pure, not both together, not neither.

So, Just relax! Let it be! Enjoy the magical show of Reality / Mind!

Note: <==> means one implies the other.

Quotes

 The unity of emptiness ~ Sengcan

Things are OBJECTS because there is a SUBJECT or mind;

and the mind is a SUBJECT because there are OBJECTS.

Understand the relativity (co-dependence) of these two

and the basic reality: the unity of emptiness.


In this Emptiness the two are indistinguishable

and each contains in itself the whole world.


If you do not discriminate between coarse (impure mind) and fine  (pure mind)

you will not be tempted to prejudice and opinion.

-- Sengcan

translated by Richard B. Clarke

https://quotes.justdharma.com/the-unity-of-emptiness-sengcan/ 


(i.e. This expresses very well the true nature of Reality as it is here & now: the inconceivable Union of the Two Truths about the three spheres: That the three spheres -- subject / mind, relation / action, objects / phenomena -- are empty of inherent existence (2nd truth) <==> exactly because co-dependent (1st truth). So, meditation should not be about trying to reduce everything to the mind (mind-only view), no more than to phenomena-only, or processes/relations-only ...

A lot of buddhists miss this point and fall into idealism and have a tendency to reject what is not 'pure mind'.

This is also why a strong basis in Madhyamaka is a prerequisite to any meditation.)

=======================

Doer and doing ~ Nagarjuna

A doer (subject) arises dependent on a doing (action),

and a doing (action) exists dependent on a doer (subject).

(i.e. The same thing with the object)


Except for that, we do not see another cause for their establishment.

-- Nagarjuna

quoted in the book Meditation on Emptiness

https://quotes.justdharma.com/doer-and-doing/ 

=======================

The Innate Beyond Subject And Object ~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche 

Phenomena (objects) are the radiance of the innate absolute;

Mind’s nature (subject) is the wisdom of the innate absolute.

(i.e. The same with their relation / action)


The ultimate teacher – phenomena (objects) and mind (subject) merged in one taste (Union) – 

Dwells naturally within myself. 


(i.e. Directly abiding on the self-arisen unalterable pristine Ground / true nature & dynamic of Reality: the Union of the Two Truths about the three spheres -- subject / mind, relation / action, objects / phenomena.)


Ah ho! What a joy!

-- Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche 

quoted in the book The Tibetan Buddhism Reader

=======================

A mere indescribable luminosity ~ Maitreya

If what appears to be apprehended (object / phenomena) does not exist by its very own essence apart from that (subject) which apprehends (action) it, then what appears to be the apprehender (subject / mind) does not exist either. 


(i.e. Union of the Two Truths about the three spheres: The three spheres -- subject / mind, relation / action, object / phenomena -- are empty of inherent existence (2nd truth) <==> because co-dependent, co-emergent, co-evolving ...(1st truth).)


The reason, here, is that the apprehender (subject) exists in relation to the apprehended (object), not in isolation. 


Therefore, awareness (Ground / Reality / Suchness) is devoid of both apprehender (subject) and apprehended (object) (and relation / action), in all their various forms. 


Free from subject and object (and action), by its very own nature awareness is a mere indescribable luminosity (Union of the Two Truths: empty luminosity).


– Maitreya

MADHYAMAKA LOGIC point of view:

NOT DIFFERENT / SEPARATE / MULTIPLE / DUAL, NOT IDENTICAL / UNITED / ONE / NON-DUAL, not both together, not neither;
NOT PERMANENT / CONTINUOUS / ETERNAL, NOT IMPERMANENT / DISCONTINUOUS / ANNIHILATED, not both together, not neither;

NOT PURELY-PHYSICAL, NOT PURELY-CONCEPTUAL, NOT PURELY-MENTAL, not two or three of them together, not none of them;
NOT THIS, NON-THIS, not both together, not neither;
-- meaning the true nature of Reality is beyond all extremes & middle, beyond all conceptual proliferations, beyond all conditioning / karma, inconceivable for our flawed conditioned conceptual dualistic minds --;
<==> then there is no real difference / separation / opposition / relation / dependence, no real identity / sameness / unity / equality / oneness / independence;

Realising the true nature & dynamic of anything & everything is the liberating factor, the door to timeless bliss.)
