Contemplation: A Pure, Lucid Mind

After reviewing the guidelines for practice, take the following as your contemplation:
Subhuti, all bodhisattvas, lesser and great, should develop a pure, lucid mind, not depending on sound, flavor, odor, touch, or any quality.  A bodhisattva should develop a mind that alights upon nothing whatsoever.
from the Diamond Sutra, chap. 10, trans. A.F. Price and Wong Mou-Lan
