Practice Quote:

It doesn't exist, even the victorious ones haven't seen it. It is not nonexistent because it is the basis of all samsara and nirvana. This is not a contradiction because this is the unity of the middle way. May we realize the true nature of mind, which is free from all limitations and extremes.
