In short, mind is the indivisible unity of empty cognizance. You can look for your mind for a billion years, and you will never find any concrete, material thing. It is empty, devoid of tangibility. Doesn't concrete or material mean that there should be an entity to see, hear, smell, taste or somehow take hold of? You won't find such a thing, not even if you looked for a billion years. This is because mind is empty. it •• Cognizant nature means we can know anything, whatever there is. It is only the minds of sentient beings that can know.
Therefore, we should definitely write a biography ofTulku Urgyen in both Tibetan and English, starting with his birth and early years, when he was named Karma Urgyen Tsewang Chokdrub by the 15th Karmapa Khakyab Dorje and recognized as a tulku of Lachab Gompa, and continuing all the way to his passing. This biography, I feel, should be written without adding or subtracting a single thing. We cannot really write his inner life story because he never spoke of the visions or predictions he received, so there is nothing fabulous of that kind to put in writing.
It's by experiencing natural emptiness that we become free, not by imagining emptiness. We may understand that mind in itself is without visible form, sound, taste, smell or texture. But understanding this is not the real thing- it's only an idea about how it really is. This is not enough. If it was, you could simply say, "I am a buddha," and you would be a buddha. But, honestly, it doesn't happen that way. The awakened state, our self-existing wakefulness, does not need to be fabricated or altered in any way at all.
