The primordial mirror

In his book, Shambhala – the Sacred Path of the Warrior, Chogyam Trungpa uses the phrase ‘the primordial mirror’. He visualises it as: ‘The unconditioned, original ground of nowness, which exists and existed before history began, before thinking began’. He says we can be in contact with it … ‘through relaxing beyond our minds, letting go of the anxiety and concepts and depression that normally blind us’. Which he says, is a matter of ‘relaxing and resting continuously in nowness.’
