Daily Dharma

[When] you simply listen without attachment to sound, to silence, or to the contrast between the two, there’s no attachment at all … You will eventually reach a point when listening still occurs, but it no longer has an object. In other words, there is still awareness, but that which you are aware of is empty.

– Dharma Master Hsin Tao, “Listening to Silence”
