Dr. Wallace continues with the text from Panchen Lozang Chokyi Gyaltsen. He explains that the movement of awareness is caused by grasping. The object of mindfulness in this practice (awareness of awareness) is the cognisance and luminosity of awareness.
Two ways are explained to “deal” with thoughts coming up: a) cut them off immediately, and b) just let them be, without grasping. Three metaphors are given for these two methods.
After the guided meditation, Dr. Wallace goes into a question concerning two quotes from respectively Tsongkhapa and Padmasambhava.
