 THE TANTRA ATTITUDE IS THE VERY BEING OF TILOPA. You must understand first what the tantra attitude is, only then will it be possible for you to comprehend what Tilopa is trying to say.

So something about THE TANTRA ATTITUDE -- the first thing: it is not an attitude, because TANTRA LOOKS AT LIFE WITH A TOTAL VISION. It has no attitude to look at life. It has no concepts, it is not a philosophy. It is not even a religion, it has no theology.
IT DOESN'T BELIEVE IN WORDS, THEORIES, DOCTRINES. It wants to look at life without any philosophy, without any theory, without any theology. It wants to look at life as it is, without bringing any mind in between -- because that will be the distortion. The mind then will project, the mind then will mix -- and then you will not be able to know that which is.
TANTRA AVOIDS MIND AND ENCOUNTERS LIFE FACE TO FACE, neither thinking, "This is good," nor thinking, "This is bad": simply facing that which is. So it is difficult to say that this is an attitude -- in fact it is a NO-ATTITUDE.
