In the path of Dzogchen, the mind looks directly into its essential nature, recognizing it as no different from the mind of the Buddha. As Lama Shabkar wrote: "This ordinary mind, unfabricated and natural, is no other than the expansive Buddha Mind free from limitations. The efforts of analysing and cultivating will never reveal the mind's innate, essential nature."
