Nondwelling

Q: Whereon should the mind settle and dwell?

A: It should settle upon nondwelling and there dwell.

Q: What is this nondwelling?

A: It means not allowing the mind to dwell upon anything whatsoever.

Q: And what is the meaning of that?

A: Dwelling upon nothing means that the mind is not fixed upon good or evil,
being or nonbeing, inside or outside, or somewhere between the two,
void or nonvoid, concentration or distraction.

This dwelling upon nothing is the state in which it should dwell;
those who attain to it are said to have nondwelling minds -
in other words, they have Buddha-minds!
