cosmic mirror: "The original state likened to a primordial or cosmic mirror." "By primordial mirror we mean unconditioned." "This unconditioned state is liked to a mirror...is willing to reflect anything...and it remains as it is"..."free from bias: kill or cure, hope or fear." (pg 100) "...the quality of the cosmic mirror is that it is unconditioned, vast open space. ...it is an eternal and completely open space, space beyond question. In the realm of the cosmic mirror, your mind extends its vision completely, beyond doubt. Before thoughts, before the thinking process takes place, there is the accommodation of the cosmic mirror, which has no boundary-no center and no fringe. ...the way to experience this space is through the sitting practice of meditation

...the realm of the cosmic mirror gives rise to wisdom-the wisdom of vast and deep perception, beyond conflict which is called drala. ...the ultimate level of experiencing drala is experiencing directly the wisdom of the cosmic mirror. When you experience that wisdom, then you are contacting the origin of the Shambhala lineage, the source of wisdom."
