Gampopa: Ordinary Mind

In summary, ordinary mind is an unmodulated simplicity,
which must be left to manifest freely and unaltered by any
exertion of accepting or rejecting it as being positive or
negative, empty or not empty, conceptual or nonconceptual,
good or bad, superior or inferior.

Leaving aside "unmodulated", the term "ordinary mind"
refers to primordial awareness, not distorted by any dogma
or dialectics. The term "unmodulated" refers to letting that
awareness be as it is, without altering it.
