Meet your essential nature in the moment
Meet in the moment your essential nature as the Primordial Knowledge, this natural and fresh knowledge of the instant, the Primordial Evidence.
Be definitively certain of this single point
Since everything that arises as the phenomena of cyclic wandering and its beyond cannot override the natural dynamics of the Primordial Evidence, there is nothing else but this: to preserve the unique flow of the Primordial Evidence. Be definitely certain of this single point.
Be directly assured of liberation
Whatever coarse or subtle thoughts appear, as soon as you recognize them naturally, equal in their emergence and liberation within the space of the Body of Reality – empty Primordial Evidence – be directly assured of liberation.
