Loving-kindness that is free from concepts

“According to Buddhism, all existents abide in loving-kindness free from concepts in their absolute nature. But the understanding and realization of that true nature have been covered over by the webs of our own mental, emotional, and intellectual obscurations.

Now, in order to uncover the true nature and its qualities, we must dispel the cover — our unhealthy concepts, emotions, and actions. Through the power of devotion and contemplation, we must uncover and see the true innate enlightened qualities — loving-kindness that is free from concepts — shining forever.”

– Tulku Thondup Rinpoche
from the book “The Heart of Unconditional Love: A Powerful New Approach to Loving-Kindness Meditation”
