Perfect Meditation

May 10, 2012

Meditation practice is not a way of entering into a manufactured state of tranquillity or equanimity. Rather, it is samyak samadhi, the perfect meditation, the perfect absorption. Perfection in this case has no allegiance toward confusion or enlightenment. That's why it is perfect. When we have no allegiance towards confusion or enlightenment, we free ourselves from any dogma, any bondage. A sense of ultimate relaxation begins to occur.

From "Selected Writings" in The Collected Works of Chogyam Trungpa, Volume Three, page 540.
