Question: What should the mind dwell upon?

Answer: It should dwell upon non-dwelling.

Question: What does that mean?

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

Question: What does that mean?

Answer: Dwelling upon nothing means that the mind doesn’t remain with good or evil, being or non-being, inside or outside, emptiness or non-emptiness, concentration or distraction. This dwelling upon nothing is the state in which it should dwell; those who attain it are said to have non-dwelling minds - in other words, they have Buddha minds.
