The traceless path

All paths are the same. They lead nowhere. They are paths going into the bush. (Carlos Castaneda)

One of the most famous and important statements attributed to Tilopa is: “The problem is not enjoyment; the problem is attachment.”

The issue of attachment is not something that relates only to things that are “illegal, immoral or make you fat”. It is equally easy to form attachments to prayer and meditation, or to any other religious practice.

Strenuously seeking truth by investigation and concentration, one will never appreciate the unthinkable simplicity and bliss that abide at the core. (from All-Embracing Mahamudra)
