Padmasambhava on devotion in Mahamudra

To use an analogy, when the sun is bright and you have an undamaged, untainted lens, dry moss will catch fire the very moment you correctly arrange the three. Similarly, when the master’s blessings, your own devotion, and the pure sincerity of your being all coincide, the original wakefulness that is Mahamudra automatically arises by simply making a supplication with deepfelt yearning.

-- Padmasambhava, from Juniper Ridge.
