The Barrier of the Mind

Teachings in the sutras for cultivating the mind

According to the Heart Sutra, the meaning of "mind" has two parts: one being temporal—the connection from thought to thought, and also the continuity from this life to the next; the other being spatial—phenomena and our environment as perceived by the mind. "No mind" is a liberated state of mind, an unobstructed mind, without any marks and traces, free of all attachments.
