Contemplation: Beginningless Purity

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your contemplation:
Because our nature is beginningless purity [...], we don't need to do anything to it or take anything from it, enhance it or reduce it, to make it manifest.  Rather, using the methods that are the path, we simply reveal it as it is.  Then our lack of understanding of this nature, our mind's ordinary habits and delusions, which are reflected in the impure samsaric experience we call reality, are completely resolved into the absolute nature.
Chagdud Tulku, Gates to Buddhist Practice, p. 147
