In this commentary on the text by Gyalse Nuptso Toknye, Rinpoche emphasizes developing a positive mental attitude and being accepting of what arises in our minds. Our self judgments and the conflicts they create within ourselves are a cause of immense suffering. Rinpoche encourages us to soften the edges of our minds and not be so sharp, so cutting:
"When looking at our minds, we should be like a gardener looking at a garden. There are weeds there, but they are not seen as some sort of bad thing. There is a lot of work to be done, but it's all in the attitude of beautifying."
